Plans to loan the company behind Cornwall's massive incinerator twenty five million pounds have gone under the spotlight on Tuesday.

Cornwall Council wants to give the money to SITA to cover the cost of delays to work at St Dennis, but it insists the loan will be repaid in full and will not cost Cornish taxpayers anything.

Officials are also discussing an seventy-nine thousand pound Community Fund for the village.

Campaigner and resident Pat Blanchard has been fighting the waste burner for years. She described the offer as "a derisory amount of money" and said: "Two hundred and forty thousand tonnes of waste coming to our village every year for thirty years and they think seventy-nine thousand pounds is enough. Nothing would be enough to compensate, but seventy nine thousand pounds is derisory."

Pat claims the project has impacted on house prices in the village: "If they'd wanted to or had to move, they've got less for their properties than they would have otherwise done, and this situation will continue for as long as the blight of this project is over St Dennis."
