The government inquiry into the county council’s refusal to go ahead with the incinerator is to open on November 19.
It is expected to go on for several weeks and will be held at the Hallmark Hotel, Matson, Gloucester.
Stroud town mayor Amanda Moriarty, along with fellow councillors, is urging people to turn out on the opening day of the inquiry, which starts at 9.30am.
Many of the town councillors plan to be there.
“People can no long officially object to the proposal but we need to turn out in force to show the government inspector the scale of our opposition for this proposal,” said Amanda.
“We, as a town council, are concerned about conserving resources, energy efficiency and recycling and the incinerator scheme goes against all that.”
Developer Ubaser Balfour Beatty is appealing against Gloucestershire County Council’s rejection of the scheme for Haresfield.
The town council filed an official objection to the proposal and Amanda Moriarty plans to speak at the inquiry.
The town council also awarded £2,000 to anti-incinerator campaign group GlosVAIN to help pay for a planning expert to represent them at the inquiry.
The town council objection is based on several factors including the possible effect on people’s health as a result of the emissions and the incinerator’s visual impact on the landscape.
“This application attracted 4,494 comments and an overwhelming amount of them were negative. There has been great emphasis by this government on localism, and this proposal has generated huge public interest and objections which cannot be ignored,” said Amanda.
