Environment Agency issues Permit to Covanta

Despite thousands of residents and interested parties submitting considered and relevant environmental concerns – the Environment Agency has issued Covanta with an Environmental Permit to operate a massive Incinerator at Rookery Pit South.

Following this announcement – BACI has received some evidence and information from experts regarding several aspects of the EA permit and process that show inconsistencies –  that could prove fruitful.  We are investigating these further before proceeding.

BACI will also be taking legal advice regarding the next steps.
