Bexley And District Against Incineration Risks (BADAIR) [Belvedere, South East London]: April 2008 UKWIN AGM Update

At the UKWIN AGM 2008 Jo Livingston described what happened after the campaign to oppose Belvedere (South East London) was lost, and the victories that were achieved: capacity reduced from 1.5m (1991 proposal) to about 700,000 tpa and consent delayed by campaigns for sixteen years. There have been three applications, three public inquiries and a judicial review (triggered by Ken Livingston). Despite universal local opposition the DTI granted approval in 2007. Campaigners are currently making life difficult as part of community forum. Construction work has begun. Cory Environmental’s project is funded by Bank of Ireland and Barclays Capital. Cory is known for this purpose as Riverside Resource Recovery Ltd (RRRL).
