Rookery South Pit nr Stewartby, Bedfordshire - IPC Ref ENO 100011

DATE: 01 Jan 2011

Infrastructure Planning Commission
Rookery South Pit nr Stewartby, Bedfordshire – IPC Ref ENO 100011
Energy from Waste plant – incinerator
.

The IPC is considering its second case, whether to permit Covanta's proposed Energy from Waste facility in Bedfordshire.
Guy Williams acted for English Heritage who object to the proposals due to their impact on the setting of Listed Buildings and Scheduled Ancient Monuments – the incinerator includes a 100m high stack, and will be visible in views from 3 Grade 1 listed buildings, and 2 Ancient Monuments including Ampthill Castle.

The IPC decided for the first time to hear this objection by cross-examination of the evidence.
