THE date for a decision on where an unwelcome incinerator could be built has been revealed.

The two shortlisted bidders – Veolia ES Aurora, which wants to build at Hatfield’s New Barnfield, and E.ON Energy from Waste AG (EEW), which favours Harper Lane, Radlett – will learn of their fate on April 28.

Once the successful bidder is named by Hertfordshire County Council, the company will start the planning process, including public consultation, for the chosen site.

Cllr Derrick Ashley, executive member for waste, said: “It’s taken us many years, but we are finally nearing the end of the process.”
