LETTER: How does he explain that?

In a letter now in the public domain, George Nobbs, the leader of Norfolk County Council implicitly urged Eric Pickles MP, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, to grant planning permission for the Saddlebow waste incinerator.

Referring to the Revised Project Plan, he sai d that plan is now signed with a funding plan in place that accounts for the recent withdrawal by Defra of the previously promised Waste Infrastructure Credits and still proves it to be of value.”

Could Mr Nobbs tell us from where an alternative £169 million of funding over 25 years has been found in these dire financial times, when apparently he considers that NCC faces bankruptcy in finding £25.9 million to compensate Cory Wheelabrator for planning failure?
