Today John Webb of Herts WithOut Waste presented a petition to the Herts CC Community Safety and Waste Management Panel. The petition asked for more recycling and composting instead of incineration.
Veolia’s Revised Project Plan for a 320,000 t.p.a. waste incinerator at Rye House/Fieldes Lock/Ratty’s Lane, Hoddesdon was today debated at Herts County Council Community Safety and Waste Management Panel.
The Panel was divided 5:5. Then Richard Thake, in his role as Executive Member for Community Safety and Waste, said that he would recommend to Herts County Council Cabinet that the Cabinet accept the HCC officers’ recommendation to accept Veolia’s Revised Project Plan.
Cabinet meets on March 14th at County Hall. The public can attend this meeting. Questions can be submitted in advance.
County councillors opposing the acceptance of Veolia’s Revised Project Plan were Maureen Cook, Richard Henry (Labour), Nick Hollinghurst (Lib-Dem), and Tim Hutchings and Alan Searing (Conservative councillors for Hoddesdon).
