In a statement today the North London Waste Authority has announced that it is withdrawing plans to develop a major waste processing site at Pinkham Way. It will instead concentrate its plans on a single site with the redevelopment of the Edmonton Waste processing centre.

Here is an extract from NLWA announcement

It now seems likely that plans for MBT facilities will be taken forward at only one site. Subject to a successful planning application for new facilities at Edmonton, it is likely that plans for MBT facilities at Pinkham Way will not need to be taken forward, but this will become clearer in due course.NLWA has therefore announced plans to withdraw its outstanding outline planning application for a Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) plant at the Pinkham Way site.The Pinkham Way site remains relevant to NLWA’s service requirements in terms of a delivery, sorting and transfer point for recyclable material and other waste that is collected from local households. Details relating to the future use of the site will depend on the letting of NLWA’s waste services contract and will, at the appropriate time, be subject to local consultation and planning processes.

It's a terrific result for the community led campaign organised by the Pinkham Way Alliance
