Government department says it is still looking at King’s Lynn incinerator plan

8th April 2014 - the following article is reproduced by kind permission of Lynn News

A government department which was heavily criticised by councillors who voted to terminate the Lynn incinerator contract is still considering the planning application for the site, officials say.

Norfolk County Council chiefs have claimed that the delay in a decision from communities secretary Eric Pickles was the crucial turning point that forced them to cancel the contract with Cory Wheelabrator.

The decision to end the agreement was approved by the council’s ruling cabinet yesterday, Monday, April 7, following a lengthy full council meeting in which members recommended axing the deal by 48 votes to 30.

But the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) says its process is not affected by the council’s decision.

In a statement issues late last night, a spokesman said: “This has been an unusually complex and controversial planning application, which has been carefully considered with due process, following an immense number of representations, including numerous post-inquiry representations. A decision will be made in due course.

“The quasi-judicial planning process is entirely separate from the procurement process and any decisions that the council may take on that aspect.”

Cory Wheelabrator have so far declined to comment on what they plan to do following yesterday’s meeting.
