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.

Cory Wheelabrator’s proposed incinerator defeated


On 8th January 2015 after 5 years of controversy Cory Wheelabrator finally gave up and withdrew their planning application.
This marks the end of the ‘Willows’ incinerator application. It is unfortunate this deeply flawed proposal dragged on for so long wasting £33million and causing much resentment. Even the very best marketing could not turn an outdated incinerator in to a good idea. Thank you to everyone who helped stop the incinerator.

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Government Subsidy withdrawn.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.


The US Environmental Protection Agency lists Significant Violations, NCC says ...“well managed”

• 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?

These days Public Inquiries are few and far between.  It is to everyone’s credit that we managed to get this.  Many thanks to all of those who wrote to Eric Pickles MP. The first step is for the Planning Inspector to decide who can give evidence.  KLWIN hopes to do so, and it is expected [...]

A large group of West Norfolk residents attended County Hall’s planning meeting on 29th June.  The way in which they were treated makes it very clear why this campaign is as much about democracy as it is about science, environment and health. Residents were initially denied entry to County Hall, and even denied access to the [...]
