Grant Shapps has announced today in a letter to his Welwyn Hatfield constituents that "we've won the battle to stop the incinerator in South Hatfield".
He goes on to say that "planning permission previously granted has today been overturned by the Planning Inspector acting on behalf of the Secretary of State for Local Government, Eric Pickles", and "this is the end of the road for this misguided incinerator plan".
This is a fantastic victory for all of those who have campaigned tirelessly against the incinerator, particularly Cathy, and we in the Brookmans Park Residents Association are proud to have been associated with that campaign. Well done to all our volunteers who knocked on doors, delivered leaflets, drafted and delivered template letters of objection, helped to man stands, attended demonstrations and delivered letters personally to the Inspectorate in Bristol.
