Proposals for a new incinerator at Beddington have raised alarm bells. Local people are concerned about the impact on health and the environment. Others from across London argue that we as a city should be moving away from polluting incinerators and turning towards cleaner and more productive ways to deal with our waste.
My colleague Fiona Twycross is going to challenge Boris on the Beddington proposal tomorrow morning at Mayor’s Question Time, with a follow-up question from me.
As we push the Mayor to say no to incineration in south London on the floor of the chamber, concerned Londoners from the Stop the Incinerator campaign will be in the gallery to express their opposition to the plans. If you are able to join, please come to City Hall for a 10am start. If you’re unable to make it in person, as always you can watch MQT online via the live webcast and you can also email Boris at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also sign the petition.
