WBAGI fully expects the application for a waste incinerator to be refused at local council level but equally expects that Grundon will appeal the result, request a public enquiry, and potentially a judicial review. We therefore feel we are potentially in for a long fight.

From the very start WBAGI has been very proactive in countering these proposals and will continue to be so. This will require strong financial backing to fight Grundon for the duration and to engage the necessary professional support required, specifically appropriate planning expertise and legal advice.

WBAGI has launched its ‘’fighting fund’’ and has a series of fundraising initiatives in place to help raise the necessary finances. In the short term we need to raise approximately £50,000 to ensure we can do what we need to, whether it is pay for photocopying of flyers for distribution, hosting of the website, hire costs of venues, signage production or for the relevant professional services. Should the application proceed to a public enquiry we will need to raise considerably more, as it is at this stage that costs will escalate and the level of professional representation required will increase significantly.

We accept this is not a small task but we refuse to let the size of the task dictate how we respond. We will do whatever it takes within our control and funds available to ensure we achieve our objective.
