West Norfolk stands on the brink of victory in the bitter fight over the Saddlebow incinerator after years of committed campaigning.

County councillors will vote today, Monday, April 7, whether or not to scrap the contract with developers Cory Wheelabrator.

And they will do so after a stunning U-turn by officers, who now say the scheme should be axed.

Throughout the whole affair, as an overwhelming referendum vote was ignored, legal challenges were rejected, countless thousands of letters were written and a public inquiry heard, this community has resolutely and consistently shown that it does not want an incinerator on its doorstep.

The Lynn News, alone among the media, has been, and continues to be, proud to stand side by side with you against it.

A majority of West Norfolk councillors have confirmed that they will vote to end the contract when they get the chance next week.

Following the officers’ change of heart, we must believe other former supporters will come with them.

The vote on Monday brings with it a golden opportunity to end this affair once and for all.

It must not be squandered again.
