Judicial review hopes against Wisbech incinerator dashed by judge





A judicial review into the Conservative Government’s decision to build a mega waste incinerator in Wisbech will not be going ahead.

Fenland District Council had appealed to the High Court, asking for a judge to review the government's approval of the plans by MVV Environment Ltd for the 54 mega-watt incinerator.

However, the legal challenge has failed with the council’s request for a judicial review on the Medworth Energy from Waste development being refused by a judge.

A spokesperson for Fenland Council said: “Given the judge's recognition that there were several deficiencies in the Secretary of State's decision to approve the incinerator, the Council was clearly justified in pursuing an application for judicial review.

“The Council is now giving careful thought to the judge's reasons for the refusal and is taking further expert legal advice as to potential next steps and looking at all available options.”
