The long-running saga over a controversial waste incinerator proposed for King’s Lynn will be debated by the full council at Norfolk County Council on Monday.
Councillors will vote on a recommendation to put to the controlling cabinet over whether to approve a revised project plan for the plant - or whether to reject it.
Rejecting it would break the contract and would trigger compensation, with council officers warning that will have grave repercussions and could lead to further service cuts.
But what do you think? The EDP wants to hear your views on the matter.
Following the withdrawal of government waste credits, county councillors will debate on whether to continue with the project on Monday.
Breaking the contract would mean that the council would have to pay £25.9m compensation to Cory Wheelabrator, and then money would have to be spent procuring an alternative.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers, however, have put the potential bill even higher - up to £100m, although they concede they did not have access to the full information.

EDP reporters across Norfolk will this weekend be asking residents whether they think the incinerator plans should be scrapped. The results of the snap-shot poll will be printed in the EDP on Monday.
