News on the incinerator

Caroline Spelman has recognised the strength of opposition to Norfolk County Council’s plans to build an incinerator at Saddlebow in a letter to Derrick Murphy, reproduced in today’s Lynn News. I was delighted to see signatures being collected for a petition in the town centre today to keep the pressure on. Central government intervening in our favour is a huge boost.

The situation now is that Defra will not award Norfolk County Council the necessary Waste Infrastructure credits for the building of the incinerator unless additional evidence in relation to a the existence of a broad consensus for their waste management structure. It will be mighty hard for Norfolk County Council to find thsi evidence.

Also, the funding will not be allocated while Norfolk County Council are subject to a Judicial Review relating to this issue (and presumably should this go against them it would be the coup de grace).

The view from the rooftop for this post is of an architectural feature belonging the building which houses the Deck of Cards.
