A legal challenge is being mounted to junk the £500M King’s Lynn incinerator project.
Environment secretary Caroline Spelman had withheld the facility’s £91M PFI credits but has since re-awarded them.
The Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, that covers the area where the incinerator is to be built, is now to legally challenge Spelman’s decision.
The council voted unanimously in favour of the motion supporting legal action, which also called for the planning decision to be called in for determination by communities secretary, Eric Pickles.
The facility is being built Anglo-US consortium Cory Wheelabrator. Earlier this week it was announced that Bam Nuttall had won a contract to carry out civil engineering work on the project.
