Veolia has lodged its appeal against the planning application refused in early February. It was submitted to the Secretary of State Wednesday 2 August, comfortably within its deadline of 23.59 on Sunday 6th.
Our understanding is that the company wishes to have this heard by public inquiry – also the preferred option of the County Council. This will take some time (typically five/six months) to organise, and is likely to involve lawyers for all parties wishing to be listened to seriously.

As soon as we have more information, not least the grounds on which the company feels an appeal justified, we will let you know.
You can be amongst the first to hear, and we’ll send you any information by email if you sign up on:
