Expert to look at waste plan
CAMPAIGNERS fighting plans to build an incinerator to deal with Cornwall's waste have commissioned an independent expert to compare the plans with their own suggestions.
Cornwall Waste Forum presented their alternative proposals for dealing with the waste to Cornwall Council earlier this year.
The group claimed that its report – which suggested the use of anaerobic digestion and increased recycling – would be more environmentally friendly and cheaper.
However, the council's Cabinet dismissed a request for the proposals to be evaluated independently, saying that it would not be able to scrap existing plans to build an incinerator at St Dennis without incurring large costs.

The group this week announced that it has commissioned its own independent assessment, employing consultants Eunomia.
Ken Rickard, chairman of the St Dennis branch of the forum, said: "The review will be led by Dr Dominic Hogg, the chairman of Eunomia, who is well known as the expert on food waste collection. The outcome of the review will influence our ongoing strategy and clarify grounds for further legal action."
