Will Collins tell Scrutiny on 18 November what his approach to the Incinerator will be?

Will Stuart Collins, the Cabinet member for waste, outline the approach being taken by Croydon Council on the Beddington Lane incinerator, when he is questioned by the Streets and Environment Scrutiny Subcommittee next Tuesday (18 November)?

An officer report explains the South London Waste Partnership, its history and an update on its activities as well ‘as an understanding of democratic oversight of the Partnership.’ It points out that Croydon ‘will have the option to take on the responsibility of Chair during 2015/2016.’

It ends with ‘The decision has been challenged and the Court judgement is expected before the end of October 2014.’

Waste Collection and Street Cleaning

The Sub-committee will also consider issues relating to the Veolia  waste collection and street cleaning contract, which the previous Tory administration re-negotiated up to 3 March 2018. The officer report to the Sub-committee discusses what is included in the contract, expectations arising from it, the impact of budget pressures and how service standards are measured and monitored.


It will also consider a report on fly-tipping  to give members ‘an understanding of why residents and businesses fly tip, the incidence of fly tipping (including ‘hot spots’) and removal and enforcement issues relating to fly-tipping.’

The reports can be accessed at:
