Fiery thoughts on incinerator
RE your report (Citizen, July 29) that the Secretary of State is to hold a Public Inquiry into the County Council's decision to refuse permission
to build an incinerator at javelin park. This is a BIG ISSUE and it seems incredible. It affects us all who put our weekly bins out for collection. After years of negotiation, press coverage, and possible alternative sites in the county, it is difficult not to feel anything but sorry for all those involved. You only mention Councillor
Hilton as a supporter of the decision but I very much doubt if he will address the Inspector at the inquiry to say why the appeal should be dismissed. Did all the other councillors sit on their hands? I also feel very sorry for all those who recommended the application be permitted. If the site is really 'within all relevant planning policies' the county officers, given their recommendation to permit the scheme, will find it hard to oppose. They are left with only its size and massing. An application for costs against the council is also on the cards. Perhaps that's why the county is hanging on to its reserves!
