December 2012 – Last chance to save Northwich

Following confirmation that funding would be available, CHAIN and fellow Northwich campaign group, SID, requested an expert opinion on the feasibility of a legal challenge to the decision by the Government to allow the TATA/E-ON Northwich waste incinerator. Accordingly, Mr Anthony Crean, the eminent QC who represented Cheshire East Council in their successful action to prevent a waste incinerator in Middlewich, was instructed.

We have now received Mr Crean?s advice and, according to our solicitor, he believes that ‘CHAIN has strong grounds and should win’ a legal challenge on a number of grounds about which he provided details.
