Evening Standard: "Campaigners win incinerator battle"

Link to Evening Standard

"Campaigners have won a High Court battle and thrown plans for a £117 million waste incinerator project in the West Country into disarray.

"In a judgment with important implications for new waste management schemes nationwide, a judge quashed Communities Secretary Eric Pickles's decision to grant planning permission for the incinerator project at St Dennis in Cornwall.

"Mr Justice Collins, sitting at the High Court in London, ruled there had been a failure to properly consider whether the EU Habitats Directive required special assessment to be carried out before permission was granted."
