Go-ahead for Gloucestershire waste
The partners will continue to work towards financial close on the 25-year deal, which will see a new energy from waste plant built on a site at Javelin Park, subject to planning approval.
“This decision follows on from Cabinet’s decision in December last year and will now allow us to agree a formal contract,” said Stan Waddington, the council’s member in charge of waste.
Last year, the decision to award the project to Urbaser Balfour Beatty was called-in by councillors, amid concerns that the scheme was no longer needed, but the opposition was rejected by the authority’s overview and scrutiny management committee in January.
