INCINERATION IS THE WORST ALTERNATIVE TO LANDFILL. FACT. YET NCC WANT TO BUILD AN EFW INCINERATOR IN KING’S LYNN. THIS WILL LOWER HOUSE PRICES, CAUSE POLLUTION, AND DESTROY OUR TOWN.
THE GENERAL PUBLIC DON’T WANT IT.
BUSINESSES DON’T WANT IT.
DOCTORS, TEACHERS & POLITICIANS DON’T WANT IT. 
WE KNOW THAT WE DON’T NEED IT. THERE ARE VIABLE ALTERNATIVES.

KLWIN's Objective

KLWIN wants to help Norfolk County Council reduce its reliance on landfill without resorting to the more environmentally damaging and socially unacceptable option of incineration.There are proven technologies, better than incineration, which can also produce energy with significantly less pollution.

We support the democratically expressed wishes of West Norfolk’s residents who do not want an inferior solution imposed on their community. The local population would have to live with the consequences and therefore deserve a say in which solution is used. The impacts on environment, health, transport and the local economy make incineration unacceptable. Responsible solutions such as Mechanical and Biological Treatment with Anaerobic Digestion and/or Advanced Composting, used successfully by other authorities, would be supported. It is our objective that Norfolk’s waste is treated in the safest and most environmentally responsible manner, which minimise its impact on people’s health and the environment.

Councillors willing to throw more money at incineration!

Ten Councillors voted for having incineration in Norfolk’s waste strategy. Council tax payers are well aware Norfolk has ‘blown’ around £30million trying to force incineration on two Norfolk communities (Costessey then King’s Lynn) with nothing to show for it except anger and mistrust of the County’s decision makers.


Some Councillors cling to outdated incineration, when other technologies have surpassed it. Even previously difficult waste such as nappies can be treated economically without burning or burying. New methods save money and don't force communities to breath microscopic particulates.


It’s incredible to think anyone would want another go at forcing incineration on Norfolk. What on earth persuaded 2 Labour councillors to back a Conservative incinerator proposal; after Labours’ election pledge opposing it?


December 15th will be a test of the entire County Council, who can be trusted, will they finally stop throwing public money at incinerator companies?


If you oppose the incinerator do join us at County Hall on 15th December. If you would like to car share there is ample free parking (at your own risk) at Fairgreen Farms, Hill Road, Middleton, Norfolk, PE32 1RN, you would need to arrive by 08:30 latest. The meeting at County Hall starts at 10am.

Government Subsidy withdrawn.

18th October 2013 The Government subsidy for the incinerator has gone. This is a most welcome spending cut and a very sensible move, just in time to prevent a great deal more money being wasted by Norfolk County Council.

This now means NCC can reject the incinerator on October 28th without being tempted by a Government subsidy (PFI). If NCC does nothing the incinerator contract will be terminated at the end of October 2013 limiting the compensation Cory Wheelabrator might claim.

• Henry Bellingham MP tells Parliament a rival bidder would have been £46M cheaper for Norfolk's Taxpayers.

• Why did officers make a last minute change of their recommendation to favour the more costly bidder?

• Why was a £20M planning failure clause signed after the applicant had already decided to apply for planning permission?

“If they had known the facts about the survey, I am sure the Government would not have offered £169 million funding. Without such a huge subsidy Cabinet would never have signed up for such an expensive contract. Ultimately if it had not been for this crucial survey ‘evidence’ Norfolk would not be tied in to [...]

  We do not have to cross our fingers hoping for the best, instead we can influence the incinerator’s outcome by sending letters to key people now. Please visit the ‘News Page’ of the Farmer’s Campaign website, to assist in your writing a letter to key people regarding this important issue.

An independent investigation is needed to get to the truth. Was it beyond the Cabinet’s authority to award such a large contract without a full council vote? Why did Council officers disregard substantially cheaper waste technologies? Did incompetent legal advice lead to a PFI contract biased in Cory Wheelabrator’s favour? Are there still ways out [...]
