Covanta Community Liaison Panel 16/10/17- Full Minutes and Handouts

Key Points
– The Independent Chair of the group has stepped down and been replaced by Robin Treacher. BACI feels that the integrity of the panel has been comprised as a result of this move. Mr Treacher worked for Covanta for a number of years during which he attended several CLP meetings as the Covanta Representative. He now works for a Company who was employed by Covanta as the PR company dealing with the Covanta’s UK interests.

– Vehicle movements to the Incinerator from the South were meant to go up the new A421 to the Marsh Leys Roundabout and then use the old A421 to Green Lane. Highways have been consulted and have concluded that the Marsh Leys Roundabout is already at capacity and therefore it has been suggested that vehicles from the south take the old A421 from the Little Chef roundabout and on to Green Lane. This means more HGV movements down the side of Marston Moretaine than previously expected.

UKWIN Bin the Burners Campaign

UKWIN (UK Without Incineration) has been very supportive during BACI's submissions to the Environment Agency and we would like to support their new initiative. As seen from the table on the UKWIN website http://ukwin.org.uk/resources/table/ - there are a number of anti-incinerator groups involved in fighting their own incinerator battle. UKWIN are asking all memberships of these local groups … Continue reading UKWIN Bin the Burners Campaign
