Feedback required on the environmental permit application for the Covanta Incinerator at Stewartby - Act now!

4 March 2017

Covanta, who are now partnered by Veolia, are pressing ahead with the incinerator which gained plannng permission back in 2013. This is being vigorously opposed by local community groups. See Marston Moreteyne Action Group website https://mmetag.wordpress.com/covanta-proposal/ and Bedfordshire Against Covanta Incinerator facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/residentsagainstcovanta/ 

The Green Party is against large scale incineration which is not necessary for energy production, reduces incentives to recycle and produces a toxic residue which still needs to be disposed of.
