Partial Building Permit issued

A building permit has been issued for an initial portion of the Energy for Waste Incinerator.

In an email, Rick Pigeon, Clarington's Chief Building Official states, "This permit is for a small  part of the main building and is for a footing and foundation for the refuse pit area and tipping area only. The floor area of this part of the project is 1466 square meters in area with a construction value of $2,000,000."

While disappointing, this was not unexpected. Given the glacial pace of our legal action, the pressure on Clarington to 'get on with it' must have been powerful.

This raises the ante somewhat, as the more money invested in the site, the greater the financial downside if (when) the zoning is overturned.
