Partial victory for incinerator campaigners

The planning application for a giant incinerator in Cardiff has been referred to Environment Minister John Griffiths.

The National Assembly for Wales petitions committee want the Minister to look at the planning permission granted to Viridor and to comment on whether the application process was carried out fairly and properly.

In March Cardiff City and County Council were found guilty of maladministration after failing to consult local residents over the plan.
