CROSS-PARTY GROUP TO CALL ANOTHER COUNTY COUNCIL EGM TO TERMINATE THE WILLOWS INCINERATOR CONTRACT

13th February 2014 - the following article is reproduced by kind permission of Town and Around

A cross-party group of Norfolk County Councillors, led by the UKIP Group Leader, Cllr Toby Coke, is to make a further attempt to terminate the Cory Wheelabrator incinerator contract while the costs are still capped at £26 million by calling another Extraordinary General Meeting of the County Council in early April.

The group, which includes Cllr Tim East (LD), Cllr Andrew Boswell (Green), Cllr John Dobson (Con), Cllr Alexandra Kemp (Lab) and Cllr Richard Bird (Ind) wants an urgent decision from the Council on whether to terminate the contract. If no decision is taken on planning by the Secretary of State by 1st May, the Council will have to decide whether to continue with the contract and, if it does so, it is expected that the £26 million cap on compensation would have to be revised upwards.

Cllr Coke said: “It is estimated that the termination costs would increase after 1st May by an eye-watering £400,000 per month or nearly £5 million per annum. It is absolutely essential that this decision is taken by the Full Council and not through an exclusive Cabinet resolution, nor under powers delegated to the authority. The group, which has strong cross-party support, believes that there is no alternative but to seek a termination of the contract, prior to that date.”
