Northwich Incinerator – the fight goes on

CHAIN have announced today that despite being forced to abandon their High Court application to delay the Judicial Review due to lack of funds, the fight to prevent the Incinerator being built in Lostock will go on.

In a bizarre twist it was revealed at the High Court hearing that EON/TATA are actively pursuing waste contracts in Cheshire West, Cheshire East and East Yorkshire and the City of Hull. Campaigners have vowed to fight to prevent this and CHAIN is urgently writing to both local councils to see whether they are seriously considering signing a waste contract to feed an incinerator in Northwich.
