Cllr Nigel Moor responds to CR4C’s claim being thrown out by the High Court:

 

Cllr Nigel Moor, Cabinet member with responsibility for Gloucestershire’s waste services said: “I am really pleased CR4C’s claim has been thrown out by the High Court, as we expected. The judge clearly states that CR4C did not have the financial standing or proven track record to bid for large scale projects, and rules that, as they did not exist at the relevant time, their case cannot proceed. We said this months ago – this has been a huge waste of everyone’s time and public money.  Javelin Park continues to work well - it has stopped household rubbish going to landfill, cut Gloucestershire’s CO2 levels by 40,000 tonnes a year and generates electricity to power thousands of homes.”

“As a public organisation, we welcome challenge and scrutiny of our processes and decisions.  However, we will always take the necessary steps to make sure the council achieves the best possible deal on behalf of the people of Gloucestershire.”
