Viridor has welcomed the Mayor's office judgement to allow a waste-burning incinerator in Beddington. Ian John, head of Planning said:
“Today’s decision builds on the approval of the London Borough of Sutton and is another important step towards achieving planning permission and the delivery of next generation infrastructure for South London.
“Working in tandem with waste reduction, reuse, and enhanced recycling, Viridor’s Beddington ERF will play an important role in diverting waste from landfill, recovering renewable energy from what remains.
“Operating to the highest national and international standards, the facility will deliver real environmental, economic, social and community benefits.”
