King’s Lynn incinerator plans go on show today

A series of public exhibitions on plans for a waste incinerator in King's Lynn go on show today.

Anglo-US waste consortium Cory Wheelabrator has been appointed by Norfolk County Council to build an 'energy from waste' plant at Saddlebow.

Its plans will be going on display at six exhibitions around the area, before a planning application is made. The exhibitions start at the Duke's Head Hotel, on King's Lynn's Tuesday Market Place from noon to 8pm today and from 10am to 4pm tomorrow.

Downham Market residents will get their chance to view the proposal at the Town Hall on Friday, January 28 between 9am and 4pm.

More exhibitions will then be held at the Parish Church in Fakenham on Thursday, February 3 and two days later between 9am and 4pm at the Assembly Rooms in Swaffham.

Finally residents will be able to view the plans at the library in Wisbech on Thursday, February 10 from 10am to 5pm.

If built, the Willows power and recycling centre on the Saddlebow industrial estate would be capable of treating up to 268,000 tonnes of household and commercial waste every year.
