We promised to let you know what the next steps are following last week’s appalling decision not to allow a call-in to public inquiry.
Our main focus now is to apply for permission for a Judicial Review (JR). You don’t just get a review; you have to ask for permission. That means we have to work with the best lawyers to examine whether we have a good case at JR.
As I have said before, if we pursue this through JR we will be up against top lawyers. If we are to win this, we need the best lawyers working for us. That costs money. We are now entering a crucial phase of the campaign.
If our lawyers advise us to go to JR then this will be our very best chance to stop this madness.
We know it’s wrong, they know it’s wrong but they persist with this unnecessary scheme.

We will continue to fight this on/from all angles/fronts. Our support is as strong as always and we still have the support of our MPs and Harrogate Borough Council and many local parishes.
Did you know?
- There are currently 31 incinerators in the UK with applications for another 120 but the country is expected to reach overcapacity by 2015.
- Rotterdam has closed an incinerator because it could not get feedstock. There is overcapacity in Europe already.
- The County is desperately short of cash, with cuts to public services – just take a look at the dire state of our roads – yet NYCC wants to squander millions of pounds on this scheme.
Thank you for your support. We will fight on and we will let you know when important things happen.
