Government decision throws incinerator plans into confusion

In a fabulous development for all concerned with fighting against incinerators, the news that Caroline Spelman, the Environment Secretary has refused to sanction £169m of public money for an incinerator scheme in Norfolk due to massive local opposition is a great boost.

In a case which mirrors our local fights, the plant at Kings Lynn received massive local opposition, had been rejected by the local councils and the objectors groups had the backing of the local MP’s (sounds familiar???).

The decision now puts other incinerator projects under a big question mark as it appears that the Government are now conscious of local opposition and of how deeply residents feel about these burners.
