Covanta Incinerator Update

In January 2018 the Environment Agency granted an Environmental Permit to Covanta to operate an Incinerator at Rookery Pit South.

Since this event –  the single-issue local group Bedfordshire Against Covanta Incinerator (BACI) has been looking to pursue a legal challenge to the permit through the Judicial Review Process.

The group has raised over £20,000 so far – which has enabled them to instruct a Solicitor and Barrister and to prepare, lodge with the courts and then serve papers to the Environment Agency as the defendant and Covanta as the interested party.
