Beddington Incinerator Permit Variation 2021

On 9th December 2020 the Environment Agency allowed a permit variation of Permit TP3836CT for Viridor Waste Management Incinerator at Beddington Lane, Croydon to increase their capacity by 15%.

In December 2021 Viridor Incinerator sought permission again from the Environment Agency to increase capacity by an additional 10% (a 26.281% increase from the original maximum agreed to obtain planning permission).

A month after the application Viridor asked their communications agency SEC Newgate to write a 2-page briefing note to the South London Waste Partnership to reveal what they are attempting to do for a second time, after a public annoyance shown by the Joint Committee on the last occasion when they discovered the increase after being told by a resident.  At the South London Waste Partnership Joint Committee meeting held on 17 December 2020, the members lined up to criticize Viridor publically.
