Gloucestershire County Council has revealed just how desperate it is to cover up the Incinerator Deal.
Despite the recent ruling by the Information Commissioner under the Freedom of Information Act (FIA), Gloucestershire County Council is now appealing to have the decision by the Commissioner overturned, so that it can keep its grubby little secret deal with Urbaser Balfour Beatty (UBB) intact and unseen. Councillors have tried hard to find out how and why a deal was made with UBB over many years now, which included a costly penalty clause if the deal did not go through.
We at Safe Air Action are appalled by the Council Officers call. The Javelin Incinerator deal has been contentious from the start and this action by the Council officers to keep parts of the deal totally secret, wreaks of wrong doing or corruption. We require full disclosure, just as the Information Commissioner indicated. Continued deception of the public over the Incinerator must stop.
