Planning Permission Refusal


 We Won!

Planning permission REFUSED unanimously by 18 to 0 votes at meeting 21st March 2013

This battle is over, the war may not be.. We'll see in due course whether UBB will appeal.

Planning permission was refused unanimously by 18 votes to 0 in a gripping 11 hour planning meeting on Thursday. An absolutely incredible result!

The battle is won....decisively....but we don't know quite yet whether the war is over though... UBB look likely to appeal, which means there would probably be a hearing or inquiry. However, whatever happens it will take some time. One thing is sure we will continue to fight it all the way and will do everything to prevent overturning of an overwhelmingly clear democratic rejection of this massively flawed project!

Below are various reports regarding the Planning Meeting and material relating to the campaign leading up to it.

Javelin Park DEMO, 14th Mar

This took place a week before the Planning Meeting and was organised to co-incide with a visit to Javelin Park made by the Planning Committee members.
We had a huge turn out and had also hired a "blimp" which flew at a height of 70m to demonstrate the height of the proposed incinerator's chimney stack
 Opposition Graphic
Thousands of members of the public objected to the Council about the incinerator planning application. Not only that, a plethora of local authorities, reputable organisations and well-known individuals did too.
