Written question to Boris for Mayor's Question Time (19th June)

Sutton Energy Recovery FacilityFrom Jenny Jones Green Party AM

The proposed Energy Recovery Facility in Beddington, Sutton, will  incinerate hundreds of thousands of tonnes of recyclable waste over the period of the contract. A resolution passed in May 2012 by the European Parliament called for incineration with energy recovery to be limited to ‘non-recyclable materials only’ by 2020. As this may pave the way for far more stringent incineration polices within the lifetime of the proposed facility, following the forthcoming review of the EU Waste Framework Directive, will you consider this as a material consideration in your forthcoming Stage II decision?

 It’s a written question, and not an oral question for the reason that Boris cannot make any public comments on any matters relating to an upcoming planning decision including at Mayor’s Question Time, until he has officially made it as a stage II planning decision in this case.  He knows that if he expressed any views prior to this, personal or otherwise, it would be regarded as prejudicing his decision and he would get into all sorts of legal problem.
