Liberal Democrat MP Lynne Featherstone has encouraged local residents to sign the Pinkham Way Alliance’s current petition to halt the £3 billion waste contract for North London.
The North London Waste Authority is intending to award a 30 year waste contract worth £3 billion for the management of waste across all seven of its member boroughs – including Haringey.
The Alliance assert that the contract is deeply flawed, as it is based on waste predictions for 30 years ahead – absurdly far in advance and already shown to be inaccurate and based on guesstimates.
The new contract could also see renewed plans for a waste facility on Pinkham Way.
The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green and the PWA have teamed up before, and successfully stopped the building of a massive waste plant on the Pinkham Way site.
Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“Last year, we successfully prevented the building of a completely unsuitable waste plant – but the fight goes on.
“The Haringey Lib Dems and I are now supporting the PWA’s latest petition – and encouraging residents to do the same.”
