Incinerator Update

This morning I was informed that Wheelabrator had withdrawn its plans for a proposed waste-to-energy incinerator at Barton Stacey. This is great news and a tribute to the community’s campaign against this project.

I made my opposition to the incinerator clear to the government and Wheelabrator from the start and I have worked closely with my neighbouring MP Caroline Nokes, in whose constituency the incinerator was to be built and who has done sterling work inside and outside Parliament to support the campaign.
