Riverside, Bexley (High Court)

DATE: 01 Feb 2007

This is a proposal for the largest Energy from Waste Plant in the country to serve Central London, waste being transported on the River Thames. The signals to the waste industry from this decision would be key to the future provision of waste treatment capacity in the UK. I appeared as junior counsel on behalf of the promoters of the project at two public inquiries (2003 & 2005), and then in the subsequent High Court challenge to the decision to grant consent (February 2007). I was instructed by Claire Dutch of Lovells on behalf of RRRL.
