Hertfordshire Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility Statement

A Veolia spokesperson said: "We can confirm that on Thursday 14 August we submitted a statutory challenge to the Secretary of State's refusal to give planning permission for the Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility at New Barnfield.

“Having studied the Secretary of State's decision we believe that current policy and law have been misapplied. We still strongly believe an in-county treatment solution is needed, as his own decision confirms, and we await the outcome of this process."
