Wisbech Incinerator

Fenland District Council has made an application for judicial review of the secretary of state's decision to award development consent for the proposed Wisbech incinerator.

Despite widespread opposition, the Medworth CHP Ltd energy from waste combined heat and power facility at Wisbech was granted permission by the Secretary of State in February 2024.

Fenland District Council and others maintain their opposition to the proposal.

The project was opposed by Fenland District Council, Wisbech Town Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Norfolk County Council, and the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk and hundreds of local residents and local action groups.

Owing to the size and significance of the proposed development, the Planning Inspectorate, rather than any local authority, examined the application and made its recommendation to the Secretary of State for the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero Clare Coutinho MP who made the decision to approve it.

Details of MVV's proposals, including any consultation events being held, are available on the MVV website
