Planning officers at the authority published their report on Cory Wheelabrator’s proposed incinerator in Saddlebow today and have recommended the plans are approved. Click on the link on the right-hand side of the page to see the officers’ report.

Norfolk County Council’s planning committee will give their verdict on the plans during a meeting at County Hall, in Norwich, on Friday, June 29. The meeting is scheduled to start at 10am.

The officers’ report reads: “This is a key proposal in terms of making a major provision for the treatment of Norfolk’s waste and moving this up the waste hierarchy from landfill.

“The proposal would have the additional benefits of generating energy in the form of power to be exported to the National Grid, and with the potential for heat and steam to be supplied to an adjacent major industrial development.

“A grant of PFI credits has been awarded by the Government and this financial provision will help facilitate the delivery of the project and consequent financial savings to the county council in the provision of the waste management service.

“The proposal has attracted a high volume of public responses. The majority of the responses received from local residents object to the proposal. The objections centre on concerns about air quality and effects on health, concerns about effects on wildlife and extra traffic.

“Objectors are also concerned about the siting of such a strategic facility on the western edge of the county. There is also local concern about effects on local businesses resulting from a reduction in tourism and effects on local farming and fishing industries.”

Opponents of the incinerator said the recommendation came as no surprise and remained adamant that Communities Secretary Eric Pickles should call in the council decision and reject it.

The planners’ report, however, says opponents’ concerns have been answered. It says: “The county council has employed consultants to advise on air quality, impacts on health and on designated natural habitats.

“The technical evidence presented by the applicants has been rigorously examined by the consultants and statutory consultees and this has been verified as demonstrating there would be no adverse impacts on air quality, human health and designated habitats.

“Statutory consultees have also verified the impact assessments on other relevant matters such as highways impact are acceptable. An appropriate assessment has been carried out, which concludes that the project would not adversely affect the integrity of European designated habitats.

“The proposal is considered to accord with the development plan and other material considerations including national planning policies also indicate that planning permission should be granted.”

Anti-incinerator campaigner Mike Knights said: “Their recommendation comes as no surprise. It shows they are ignoring people’s concerns and are not going for the best solution.”

Fellow anti-incinerator campaigner Michael De Whalley said: “The people of West Norfolk have made every effort to engage with Norfolk County Council towards finding a more responsible and socially acceptable solution. The planning consultation has attracted nearly 8,400 representations to date, of which more than 7,600 are objections.

“NCC has consistently failed to address people’s concerns and the officers’ recommendation reflects this.

“No one in West Norfolk will ever forget county council’s shameful response to the overwhelming poll last year.

“This project is flawed and its building will serve as a fitting crematorium for what little remains of Norfolk’s democracy and NCC’s reputation. I do not believe this saga will end at the planning committee on June 29.”

South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss said: “Sixty-five thousand residents of West Norfolk voted against the incinerator and their voices need to be heard.

“I believe the scheme in its current format is in the wrong location, too large and in the long-term unsustainable.

“I have repeatedly advocated the creation of a pan-Norfolk waste operation to deal with waste more efficiently.”

West Norfolk council leader Nick Daubney added: “We’re not surprised but we are disappointed, of course. I still feel strongly it’s preposterous for a decision of this size to be made in such a short meeting.

“We as a borough council have been given 10 minutes to speak on the biggest issue in this borough I can remember.

“If 65,000 people in this borough said they didn’t want this then I think the county council should take notice of that. This is the amount of time we might devote to a small-scale house extension.”

There will be 120 seats available at next week’s planning meeting for members of the public, 40 in the public gallery and a further 80 in an adjoining committee room with an audio link.

These seats will be available on a first come, first served basis on the day. Parking at County Hall will also be limited on the day.

The county council has also revealed the format of the meeting which will start with a presentation of the final report by officers.

This will be followed by 30 minutes where members of the public objecting to the proposal can speak, 10 minutes for statutory consultees including West Norfolk Council, 10 minutes for the surrounding parish councils, 30 minutes for the applicant and supporters and ten minutes for the local member, David Harwood.

Each opportunity to speak will be followed by the chance for questions by members of the planning committee. At the end of the presentations there will be a debate and a decision by the planning committee.

The authority has said standard time for objectors and the applicant and supporters has been extended in recognition of the importance of this issue.

Anyone wishing to speaking at next week’s meeting is advised to call the county council’s democratic services department on 01603 223055.

Norfolk County Council awarded the contract to build the incinerator, known as the Willows Power and Recycling Facility, to Cory Wheelabrator last year.

The county council says the plant is needed to prevent the county’s waste having to go to landfill. It says it will save millions of pounds a year.

Paul Green, speaking on behalf of Cory Wheelabrator, has previously said: “The proposed Willows Power and Recycling facility has the potential to supply electricity to the National Grid and steam to neighbouring industry, which would make this plant one of the most efficient in the UK.

“We’ve held early stage discussions with Palm Paper on whether the Willows facility could supply steam to the paper mill, but at present no contract is in place.”

Environment secretary Caroline Spelman has already announced the approval of £91m in PFI funding to Norfolk County Council to go towards the cost of the proposed incinerator in Saddlebow.

However West Norfolk council intends to challenge Ms Spelman’s decision to approve the PFI funding and has previously urged communities secretary Eric Pickles to call in the scheme so an independent inspector can have the final say.

The council claims Ms Spelman broke her own guidelines in awarding the money because there is not a “broad consensus of support” for the £500m incinerator. A poll carried out in West Norfolk saw 65,000 people vote against the building of the plant.

Anti-incinerator campaigners attempted to secure a judicial review into the process by which the county council agreed to award a contract to waste company Cory Wheelabrator but a High Court judge dismissed their attempt in December.

West Norfolk Council has also revealed it has been in talks with a consortium offering an alternative to the disposal of black bin waste.

Next week its councillors will be asked to approve formal contract negotiations with the group, called Material Works and including a firm called Duratrust, which has developed a process to recycle waste into an inert plastic-like material.

  • John Boldon is quoted on the radio today saying he is really pleased that NCC officers have given their backingapproval. What a silly thing to say John; of course they have the project was commissioned by NCC Officers on Behalf of NCC. Mr Boldon's company have been working as one entity with NCC officers!! How could there have ever been a different outcome as NCC decided it? CW even claimed to be representing NCC to Waitrose and Tesco, I have letters from the relevant Chief Execs telling me so. FARCE, FARCE, FARCE but with a £20.3 million breakage fee, NCC being the promoter, as evidenced in many official documents, NCC being the landowner and NCC being the decision maker there could be no other possible result. Of now to write to Mr Pickles again!!

  • One of the councillors on the list whose name I will not give lest he be dragged out and beheaded (or kneecapped) outside County Hall told me that he couldn't care less one way or the other about an incinerator. I take that as a neutral view. Then surely he should read the report, ask for further information and make an informed decision. Or he could just do as he is told. Yup I go for the second option. Spineless bunch.

  • When you're employed by NCC, to not come up with the answer they want would be to accept your own redundancy. The applicant's answers have been accepted over every objection, and they have left details out, despite calls for them to provide more information. On top of everything else, the planners had a deadline to put it before the committee and they have kept to it regardless of whether all the information was in or not. NCC are making a national fool of themselves.

  • NCC from the outset could have lawfully delegated the determination of this planning application to any other local planning authority. However, so as to minimise risk to itself, it did not. So now we have the officer with primary responsibility for the incinerator procurement also having primary responsibility for the report to the planning committee. We also have, as members of that planning committee, four councillors who were involved in the procurement process - despite an assurance given six months ago that this would not be the case. What on earth has happened to democracy in Norfolk?

  • What a patronising comment RupertJames - even if you are right that not all objectors will have studied and "understood" the issues to the depth you have you are still heavily outnumbered, probably by many who understand the issues a lot better than you do. As for Pentney Voice's comment that anybody who disagrees is a troll words fail me - is this really the best argument you can muster? I do not live in the affected area so this is not a NIMBY comment. I do believe strongly in local democracy (warts and all) and having a Planning Committee from outside the affected area supported by a bunch of unelected "jobsworth" officials making the decison is not democracy in action when 65,000+ have raised a petition against it. If you are sure you are right start your own petition and when you exceed the total of objectors I will concede that this would be local democracy in action!

  • Wheelabrator was fine $7.5 million recently at three of its plants in America, At Saugus, North Andover and Millbury plants. At North Andover Wheelabrator allegedly committed multiple violations of the Hazardous Waste Management Act by failing to treat and dispose of ash, they were also fined for failing the Clean Water Act for failure to contain fugitive ash.. Wheelabrator Millbury and Wheelabrator Saugus allegedy also committed violations of Clean Water Act and also the Wetlands Protection Act by releasing ash and contaminated water and ash sludge into wetlands. No wonder 65.516 people said NO. And we pay our taxes to be treatd like this.

  • Just where do objectors think all the residue from other forms of waste disposal goes? Out of sight in Humberside-North Lincs and other places, that's where. We are obliged by the EU to stop landfill on penalty of significant fines. It is not possible to recycle every piece of waste, especially some plastics, and not sensible to recycle some. Why grow elephant grass on good farmland for biomass incinerators and then make a useless ill controlled and possibly toxic growing medium from household organic waste which could provide biomass energy? Stupid in the extreme.

  • Incineration has not been accepted in the waste hirarchy, it has been rejected twice by a large majority of Norfolk voters. Now that the decision has been made to break the contract NCC has had with council tax payers we can start organising our own recycling schemes to benefiot us locally. All those calling for the pollution of the skies and the surrounding land rather than using modern methods to deal with our waste are ignorant and as backward as the waste burner they are so praising. Lets hope the local Conservatives don't cave in and support for voters against this ultimatum by NCC's despots.

And why does the report say the energy will be linked into the national grid and sold to local business (Palm Paper) when this has been denied by National Grid and PP.

I'd put good money on at least 90% of local objectors having no genuine idea of why they're objecting other than that they've been told to by the spurious scare stories pumped out by a fear-mongering local media and a band of well-organised but misguided protesters. Let's be honest, most people will vote no to something if they're bombarded with negative information and told there's a health risk...even when there isn't. Hopefully now we can get this thing built, stop polluting our land with rubbish in landfills and stop carping about a project that will bring jobs and benefits to West Norfolk.

  • 15,06,2012. A group of experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified diesel engine exhaust carcinogen – a substance that causes cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the WHO, based its decision on what it calls “sufficient evidence” that exposure to diesel exhaust causes lung cancer “limited evidence” that it increases the risk of bladder cancer. The new classification moves diesel fuel from the category of “probably carcinogenic” to “carcinogenic.” If this is the case then the residents living the A47 corridor from will be more susceptible to cancers. An extra 1000 movements in and out of the incinerator plant will not help now poor quality air conditions.

Every councillor on that committee has already made a commitment to support the building of the incinerator.
