North London waste plan on hold

18 June 2012 The North London Waste Authority’s £600m waste PPP is facing potential delays after hearings into the plan were suspended.
Examination hearings for the North London Waste Plan have been put on hold by the inspector, who decided submissions from the local councils needed “full consideration”.

This consideration will run until 27 June, but the hearings themselves have been suspended until further notice.

“If the hearings resume, it is anticipated that they would be no earlier than late September,” the inspector’s statement warned.

The authority’s planning application for a waste facility on the Pinkham Way site has been on hold since May pending the outcome of the hearings.

“As one of the interested parties who were consulted on the North London Waste Plan, we are obviously disappointed by this delay,” said a spokesperson for the NLWA.

“Along with the other interested parties we await the inspector’s announcement in a few weeks’ time.”
