25/01/2011 - Covanta update following January Pre-Hearing Meeting

Following the publication of the Covanta application, invitation to register an interest and pre-hearing in January, the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC) has announced the timetable for the review of Covanta’s proposals and also released a series of questions they wish to explore.
The IPC Procedural Decision can be found in the representation and document section, they also include a summary of the meeting.
Please read the IPC documents as there are dates and issues that you may have a particular interest in. Please note the key dates in the timetable:

4th February IPC will be visiting Rookery Pit with representatives of Covanta and local Councils to view the site and will make a second visit on the 12th July.
5th & Wednesday 6th July – Open Floor Hearings at the Forest Centre daytime and evening, designed to ensure local people have access to the IPC and can express their views directly.

For those who registered their views on the IPC web site, the IPC have, as expected, decided to rely on written detailed representation at this stage which must be submitted by February 28th 2011.
You will find the initial registration of views by statutory and non statutory bodies, local authorities, parish councils and business and public at

Of note, that in addition to the individual local authorities and parish councils representations, there is a grouping of 24 Parish/Town Councils which those providing more detailed representation may find helpful. Representation Number 714
