The Parliamentary Joint Committee on the Rookery South Order had their 2nd meeting on 31st October.
This hearing carried on topics not finished last meeting – then concentrated on the waste hierarchy – the amount of waste produced in Central Beds and Bedford and the total potential waste available in surrounding counties. Currently the Covanta proposal does not have defined catchment area. In this meeting the Councils put forward an amendment to the proposal for the committee to put limitations on the size of the catchment area.
