Terminate the Javelin Park incinerator contract with Urbaser Balfour Beatty

We the undersigned petition the council to terminate the contract with UBB and, instead, pursue alternative options for the reduction, recycling and disposal of Gloucestershire's waste.

The Government has approved, on Appeal, Urbaser Balfour Beatty's planning application, to build a huge waste incinerator at Javelin Park, in Haresfield.

However, the incinerator was opposed by our elected County Planning Committee, by thousands of local people, and by Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham District Councils. Its approval is an abject failure of local democracy.
