The Environment Agency gets it wrong

CHAIN have issued a press release today covering the recent announcement by the Environment Agency that they are ‘minded’ to grant a permit to TATA/EON to build and operate an incinerator in Northwich. As you might expect they have once again ignored perfectly reasonable requests for information and are very likely to issue an operating permit. We believe that this decision is both sort sighted and incorrect and pre judges a study currently underway to establish causal links between incinerators and still births, birth defects and congenital defects by assuming that it will find in their favour. This is entirely wrong and you can read our press release here.
