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.

New Milestone Reached!

December 15th 2014 at a Norfolk County Council meeting we reached a major milestone.


In the morning a motion to prevent the sale of the Willows site (owned by the County Council) to anyone who might use it for incineration won with flying colours. However, the icing on the cake came in the afternoon when an amendment tabled to remove incineration from the new Waste Policy won with a resounding 64 votes to six against with six abstentions. The Waste Policy was then immediately waved through without any hitch.

Government Subsidy withdrawn.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 [...]
