Comment from Westbury Town Council Highways, Planning and Development Committee (20.06.2022) to the Environment Agency Briefing 16 decision:

“The Town Council are deeply disappointed by the decision the Environment Agency has reached in granting a licence for the Westbury Incinerator. We feel the decision was taken without full and appropriate public consultation and does not fully take into account the serious detrimental impact it will have on the town and local community. The town council are currently taking legal advice to see if there are grounds for challenging this decision.”
