Current Consultation: A consultation on how North London Waste Authority (NLWA) provides waste disposal services.

Consultation open from 9 October to 24 November 2017.
This consultation exercise is directed to representatives from the seven north London Borough Councils, local businesses and Community Groups only.

Phase one (November 2014 - January 2015) and phase two (May - June 2015) consultation.

The replacement energy recovery facility that we are proposing would generate over 50 megawatts of electricity. In planning terms, this means that it is a ‘Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project’. This meant that the decision to grant consent for our proposals (following examination of our application) was taken by the Secretary of State for Energy, Industry and Industrial Strategy. 

The consent we applied for is known as a ‘Development Consent Order’ or ‘DCO’.

We had two planned phases of consultation. The first phase took place between 28 November 2014 and 27 January 2015 and allowed us to collect your thoughts before we shaped our plans. The second phase took place from 18 May to 30 June 2015 and allowed us to ask for your comments on the detail of our proposals.

The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has now granted a Development Consent Order (DCO) for us to build a replacement energy recovery facility, and associated development, at the Edmonton EcoPark.

We will now consider the details of the consent, and the implications of any conditions included. You can read the full statement here.

Tell me more about the consultation process

Our statement of community consultation set out how we intended to consult in the period during which we prepared our application. It was prepared in accordance with the requirements of Section 47 of the Planning Act 2008, and was subject to consultation with Enfield Council, the host borough for our application.
