An Extraordinary Meeting of Norfolk County Council will be held on Monday 7 April for County Councillors to debate the future of the energy from waste contract for the Willows site in King’s Lynn.
The meeting will take place in the Council Chamber of County Hall at 10am. The notice for the meeting explains that the meeting has been called so that Council can consider:
a) whether, in view of the delay in the Secretary of State's planning decision in relation to the Willows, it wishes to recommend to Cabinet that the Contract is allowed to terminate to avoid an increase in the compensation figure, currently capped at £20.3m
b) whether or not, if planning is granted, it recommends to Cabinet to continue to implement the revised project.
Copies of the agenda and an officer report to inform the debate at the meeting will be published on the County Council’s website.
The meeting will be followed on the same day by an additional meeting of the Cabinet to consider any recommendation that may arise from the council meeting.
The meeting of the Cabinet scheduled for 7 April will now be held on Thursday 10 April at 10.30am.
The special meeting was requested by Councillors Toby Coke, Richard Bird, Alexandra Kemp, Tim East, Andrew Boswell and John Dobson.
