Sutton Borough Council gave permission for a waste-burning incinerator, a decision which has now been backed by the Mayor of London. Planning officials say the Mayor will not direct them to go back on the decision for the site in Beddington.
Deputy Mayor Sir Edward Lister today found "no sound reasons for the Mayor to direct refusal of the scheme":
“The Borough Council and the applicant have taken steps to ensure the scheme meets the requirements of the London Plan; and having carefully considered the merits of this application against every possible concern I have concluded there are no sound reasons for the Mayor to overturn the Borough’s decision.”
