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.

We finally did it!

7th April 2014 marks the end for Cory Wheelabrator's proposed incinerator. Bill Borret led incinerator supporters on the Conservative benches in a desperate bid to resuscitate this fatally flawed vanity project; thankfully they failed. The Full Council vote to condemn the contract simply left the Cabinet to pronounce the time of death.


The Willows incinerator has been watched nationally because of the overwhelming “No” vote in West Norfolk. The PFI money was pulled by Central Government as there was “no need.” There is no need for incineration in King’s Lynn as there is no need for new incineration capacity nationally.


Today’s decision is a testament to the power of community. One voice of reason can be heard and many voices can effect change. The residents of West Norfolk are proof of that.


The job is only half done. KLWIN will now press for the more cost effective, environmentally friendly and socially acceptable solutions.


An effective start to this process is to consider county-wide food waste collections for anaerobic digestion or composting facilities.


Finally KLWIN would like to thank all those who have supported the campaign.

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 [...]

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 [...]
