Campaign Group(s): West Berkshire Against Grundon Incinerator (WBAGI)
Notes: Grundon announced in November 2012 that they had walked away from plans for the incinerator [Source, Source]. Planning application submitted in December 2011 and refused in April 2012, with the refusal not being appealed by Grundon [Source] (ref 11/02644/COMIND). The Highways Agency had said that the application should be refused because access would be via a motorway service area. The site "is within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is due to be restored to agricultural land and woodland under the terms of the existing planning permission" [Source]. Capacity reduced by 100,000 tonnes "in response to local opposition" in October 2011. (Entry updated 2012-11-27)
