On 16th December 2021, the NLWA: North London Waste Authority met at the Crowndale Centre in Camden, one of the seven boroughs implicated, to award the Edmonton Incinerator rebuild contract to Acciona.
A small group of the big StEIN movement was formed to explore legal avenues to challenge this decision being made on insufficient and misleading information and we have engaged Richard Buxton solicitors who sent a letter to NLWA.
The NLWA response on 14th January disputes all the grounds, but we want to establish that the decision to contract with Acciona was invalid.
Buxton have negotiated with a barrister, and a preliminary legal challenge will cost £6,000 plus VAT, so we need your help to start this challenge and hope to proceed with future costs protected.
You know the seven boroughs involved: Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Waltham Forest.
And that the incinerator is built in an area of deprivation undermining health and well-being.
And that there is overprovision of incinerators nationally and in London meaning this is a useless debt put on our children and grandchildren.
And we should be improving recycling towards a green economy to save humanity from global warming, not burning plastic to make energy and heat.
Dorothea Hackman, a retired grandmother from North London, is taking the lead for StEIN. This is not something everyone could do, but you CAN donate, so please give what you can. Thank you so much!
