New application for waste incinerator in Oxfordshire

A new planning application has been submitted to build a waste incinerator in Oxfordshire, six months after a previous bid was rejected.

The energy company Viridor wants to build an energy from waste (EfW) plant at Ardley.

The firm said its "refreshed" bid addresses issues raised by objectors.

Robert Ryan, of Viridor, said: "We are making it clearer how urgent the need is for a residual waste treatment facility for Oxfordshire."

The company is maintaining its appeal against Oxfordshire County Council's decision to turn down the previous application in October 2009.

Councillors said it would have a detrimental effect on the environment.

The Planning Inspectorate inquiry into the decision will start on 6 July and is expected to last 10 days.

A separate incinerator for Sutton Courtenay was also refused planning permission by councillors.
