MMAG and ‘Our Marston Vale’ Demonstration 04/02/11

The IPC has announced the timetable for the review of Covanta’s proposals and also released a series of questions they wish to explore.IPC documents – Notice of Procedural Decision and Advice Note

As we thought the IPC have decided to rely on written responses at this stage which must be submitted by February 28th 2011 from those who have registered with the IPC.

If you are unsure what you want to submit to the IPC don’t forget to check MMAG’s Local Impact Report  for ideas. In addition Stewartby Parish Council are holding an open meeting in Stewartby Village Hall on Thursday 3 rd February focused on preparing submissions to the IPC, so why not pop along? More details will appear on the website shortly.

Please read the documents as there are dates and issues that you may have a particular interest in. However some key dates that we all need to note are as follows:
