The Mayor’s office has moved to block controversial plans for a waste incinerator on the border of Croydon and Sutton.
A report from the Greater London Authority said the project did not conform to the London Plan and demanded more information about its potential impact on air quality.
The plant would create energy by burning up to 302,500 tonnes of waste from Croydon, Sutton, Kingston and Merton each year – enough to produce heat and electricity for 30,000 homes in Croydon, Sutton.
But activists from Stop the Incinerator claim the project is unnecessary, inefficient, and dangerous to public health.
