A cross-party group of councillors has said Norfolk can afford to break its contract and scrap plans to build a waste incinerator at King's Lynn.
Councillors are due to meet today to discuss whether to go ahead with the controversial scheme after the withdrawal of a £169 million government grant.
Norfolk County Council insists the site at Saddlebow would still save taxpayers money and say it cannot afford to pay contractor Cory Wheelabrator around £26 million to break its agreement.
But a group of councillors says the authority has enough money in its reserves to cover the cost.
