MMAG along with many other elected representatives and community groups attended this event on 12th March which was really ; “Get to know the IPC”
A key statement from the IPC was that if the dis-benefits outweigh the solution offered by Covanta then the proposal will be refused by the IPC.
MMAG and our sister group Our Marston Vale and a host of others are going to take the Covanta proposal apart line by line. We will demonstrate to the IPC that the Covanta proposal is the wrong solution and in the wrong place. Indeed Covanta at a separate meeting of the Community Liaison Panel on March 15th confirmed that Rookery Pit South isn’t necessarily the best place to put an incinerator when compared with other sites – it just happens to be the better site for Covanta !
