Pirate FM can reveal plans for a giant incinerator in St Dennis will go ahead.

We have just learnt the Supreme Court has upheld a government decision on the waste burner at St Dennis.

Judges have refused permission to appeal.

The ruling says:

"Cornwall Waste Forum St Dennis Branch's application for permission to appeal has been refused.  In relation to the point of European Union law raised or in response to the application it is not necessary to request the Court of Justice to give any ruling because the question raised is irrelevant; the Court’s existing jurisprudence already provides a sufficient answer and the answer is so obvious as to leave no scope for any reasonable doubt.  The only possible issue is one of English public law, turning on its special facts."

 

Ken Rickard speaks for the Duchy's waste forum:

"Incineration is an out of date, dirty, polluting technology. The emissions cannot be controlled. We've got visual, dust and noise impact on the local community. It's got no place in the modern world"

"There is no doubt that Mr Cameron's localism bill has not reached Cornwall. This planning application was rejected at Parish, District and County Council level and also rejected in the High Court"

 

In a statement Cornwall Council said:

"The Council notes today’s Supreme Court decision to refuse Cornwall Waste Forum permission to appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision to reinstate the Secretary of State’s grant of planning permission for the Energy from Waste facility at St Dennis and also to refuse to refer this case to the European Court of Justice."

"While we recognise that some people will be unhappy at this judgement, it will enable the Council to take action to tackle the waste issue facing Cornwall."

"Work on the draft Revised Project Plan is currently taking place and a report will be considered by the Council’s Cabinet later in the year."

 

David Buckle, Project Director at SITA UK said: “This judgment provides welcome clarity that planning permission is securely in place for the Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre.”


“We will continue to work with Cornwall Council to finalise the details of the Revised Project Plan and build this much needed facility without any further undue delay”
