Second incinerator near Bicester approved
11:20am Saturday 21st April 2012 in Bicester
PLANS to build a second incinerator near Bicester have been approved.
Buckinghamshire County Council’s development control committee yesterday gave the go-ahead to plans by Waste Recycling Group to build a burner at Calvert, nine miles from Bicester.
Campaigners say Bicester will be “the filling in an incinerator sandwich” after plans for an incinerator at Ardley were approved last year. The Ardley site is less than five miles from the town. Each will take 300,000 tonnes of waste a year.
The move will mean an extra 84 lorry trips a day around Bicester as waste is trucked to the Calvert site.
