New rubbish treatment plant edges nearer

3rd September 2009 - the following article is reproduced by kind permission of Lynn News

PLANS for a new rubbish treatment plant on Lynn's Saddlebow Industrial Estate took a step forward this week.

Norfolk County Council has not ruled out the option of a waste incinerator at the site in its bid to reduce the volume of rubbish going to landfill, but the type of facility has yet to be decided.

Councillors have been recommended to short-list four waste management organisations to proceed to the next stage of the PFI (private financial initiative) project and submit detailed proposals for the new facility.

The county council had to select a possible site for the facility – eventually choosing the Saddlebow estate – to get the PFI project off the ground.

But the company eventually given the contract may well decide to build it elsewhere in Norfolk, once it has planning permission.

Chairman Ian Monson, Norfolk County Council's cabinet member for waste and the environment, said: "The timetable for this important project, which will reduce our reliance on landfill and help us tackle climate change, is progressing well.

"The pre-qualification process generated considerable interest from the global waste management industry and, following a thorough financial, legal and technical evaluation of ten applicants, we have identified a strong short-list of four high-quality organisations – all of which have robust financial and waste management credentials."

Subject to cabinet approval, short-listed bidders will be invited to submit detailed solutions for the proposed waste treatment facility by January.

A further two candidates will be short-listed next summer before a preferred bidder is selected in October next year.

Contracts are expected to be awarded in March 2011.
