Breaking News – IPC Approve Covanta Incinerator

Clearly everyone who fought the Covanta proposal will be deeply disappointed and angry to learn that despite overwhelming local and national opposition the IPC have imposed the monster incinerator on the Marston Vale.

MMAG and others are studying the IPC decision:

MMAG initial response is that the IPC consent came with conditions which we will ensure are met. Of course the Environment Agency are yet to give its approval and to date Covanta have no significant customers so the economics of the incinerator still don’t stack up.

The fight goes on and a more comprehensive statement will be made in due course.
