The public inquiry into the plans for a proposed incinerator at Saddlebow, King’s Lynn, will recommence today.
Due to the length of evidence and cross-examination there have been some delays to the original schedule so Karen Colebourn will begin giving her evidence on ecology today.
Ms Colebourn, who is speaking on behalf of Cory Wheelabrator, was due to finish giving evidence on March 8, but is yet to start.
A major topic that Ms Colebourn is likely to approach is the effect of such a facility on Roydon Common, a nature reserve near King’s Lynn.
Others who are due to begin giving evidence this week include Professor Jim Bridges, on health, Simon Aumonier, on carbon and Roger Miles, who will be speaking on planning, need and alternative sites.
The case for Norfolk County Council is scheduled to begin on March 14, with Neil Cameron QC calling Mark Broomfield who will be giving evidence on air quality and health.
After Mr Broomfield has been cross-examined, Richard Smithers will be speaking on ecology and habitat.
Caroline Jeffrey is then intended to give her evidence on planning policy.
Next week, commencing on March 18, is due to be a non-sitting week with the inquiry returning at 1pm on March 26.
The inquiry continues today at the Professional Development Centre on Kilham’s Way, King’s Lynn.
