|Project name:||UK: Gloucestershire Waste PPP|
Deliver waste management services for the diversion of municipal solid waste from landfill. A new energy from waste plant will be build with capacity to treat between 150-175,000 tonnes of residual waste a year. Location, subject to approval, is on a site at Javelin Park.
The project was originally formulated as a PFI scheme, with the council receiving £92m in PFI credits. However, the credits were withdrawn as part of the 2010 Comprehensive Spending Review, but the council has decided to continue with the procurement through a PPP model.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has given the go-ahead for the £180m waste PPP deal in Gloucestershire following a planning dispute.
The deal reached financial close in February 2013 with the UBB consortium, comprising waste specialist Uberior and Balfour Beatty, but was thrown into doubt when planning permission for the new plant was refused by the Gloucestershire County Council’s planning committee.
UBB appealed to the Secretary of State and Pickles has now confirmed that the scheme can go ahead.
