Incinerator consultants paid almost £50,000 by county council
A CONSULTANCY firm advising Gloucestershire County Council on its proposals to build an incinerator in Javelin Park has been paid nearly £50,000 in fees.
The county council's Conservative administration defended itself against claims of 'cronyism' at a meeting on Wednesday after the bill for the consultants was revealed.
The authority has paid £48,510 to BPP Consulting.
Conservative members told their peers that BPP Consulting was given the job of helping prepare the council's incinerator planning application because of its expert knowledge in the field.
