Suffolk’s Conservatives are proud of our record of protecting our county’s environment.
We have invested in our historic market towns and the re-generation of the Ipswich waterfront. We are conserving Suffolk’s scenic countryside. The county’s energy-from-waste plant has enabled us to save money on landfill tax, generate electricity and earn income. The plant was built to budget and on time. It takes all Suffolk’s domestic waste for incineration and turns it into electricity which powers 30,000 homes. As a result, waste going to landfill in Suffolk has been cut from 44% to just 1%.
