Norfolk County Council has today approved plans to go ahead with the controversial incinerator at King's Lynn.
Following a full council meeting yesterday the cabinet agreed to continue trying to get planning permission.
If they had refused, they would have faced a £26 million compensation bill to the contractors. The final decision now lies with central government.
Norfolk County Council leader George Nobbs believes that the Council had no choice but to press on with the plans.
