York Residents Against Incineration

A government-appointed inspector has thrown out North Yorkshire’s Waste and Minerals Core Strategy.

On the second day of the public examination the plan, the inspector Jonathan King announced that there appeared to be major outstanding issues with the strategy and he was unlikely to be convinced by the evidence that the Council had presented.

One of the most prominent parts of the plan was the identification of Dalton Airfield as a site for a future waste incinerator. The Dalton Incinerator Steering Commitee (DISC) has been opposing this plan and had presented evidence  during the public examination. It is now unlikely that an incinerator will be built on this site.

The decision may have set back work on the Waste Strategy by a couple of years.

See the UKWIN (UK without Incineration) website for more details of the inspector’s decision, and also the article in the Darlington and Stockton times.
