Walesonline: "Plans for huge waste incinerator withdrawn with immediate effect"

Link to Walesonline

"COVANTA Energy has withdrawn its application to build a 750,000 tonne-a-year waste incinerator with immediate effect. The firm blamed the 'fragmented approach' of local authorities for making the plant unviable. It said it would have transformed the area had it gone ahead.

"The American giant proposed to build the Brig-y-Cwm site on land between Merthyr Tydfil and the Rhymney Valley. Despite a petition of more than 13,000 signatures against the proposal, a spokesman said that the withdrawal was a 'purely strategic decision'."
