Preferred bidder status for incinerator at Calvert to be investigated

The decision to give preferred bidder status to the Waste Recycling Group (WRG) to provide an incinerator at Calvert is to be further investigated by the Overview and Scrutiny Commissioning Committee at Bucks County Council.

At a meeting today, Tuesday (14/12) scrutiny committee members decided there were sufficient grounds to undertake a full examination of the decision by councillor for planning and environment, Martin Tett, after county councillor John Cartwright (Grendon Underwood) presented his case for a call-in.

It will meet in early January to hear arguments on both sides of the case, and consider whether they feel the cabinet should look again at the decision.
