Council urged to reconsider incinerator plans: full report
An MP, a best selling author and a host of fashion designers are among the growing number of high profile figures calling on Gloucestershire County Council to reconsider its plans for an incinerator. Among them, the author Jilly Cooper, who says it is "an assault on our rural heritage."
Today, campaigners added further weight to that argument claiming that the new plant on the outskirts of Gloucester has been poorly thought through and may even be in breach of European law.
