It is claimed rethinking Cornwall's controversial incinerator would take nine years.

The council says that is how long it would need to get alternatives organised and there is not time.

It is after Pirate FM told you about an independent report which said scrapping the St Dennis scheme would save taxpayers £320m.

County Hall says it would mean carrying out another public consultation, finding a new site and contractors and obtaining planning permission.

It estimates that could take eight to nine years to do with landfill costs mounting to up to £90m.

In a statement the council said: "The Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre has been thoroughly tested through the planning and legal processes, including an extensive public inquiry, over the past six years and has been found to be a reliable and deliverable solution for managing Cornwall’s waste for the next 30 years.

"Cornwall is rapidly running out of landfill space and to effectively start the process again is not a viable option."
