Thank you to everybody that submitted comments to the Environment Agency.
The final numbers are not through from the Environment Agency yet – but our contact has advised us that it is looking like 1200+. This is a good number for a second consultation where there are more limitations imposed by the EA on the objections that can be used. You can keep a tab on the submissions sent via the online system as they are processed by visiting https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/psc/mk43-9ly-covanta-energy-limited-1/consultation/published_select_respondent
The petition is still open and will remain open until Mr Gove answers and launches an investigation into the situation. Please feel free to post a response to the extremely generic and sterile current reply to the petition by the CEO of the Environment Agency Sir James Bevan. Please keep signing and sharing.
