Update on joint long term waste management contract

Published: 31 May 2024

Plans by Derbyshire County Council and Derby City Council to fix and operate a waste treatment facility in Sinfin are on hold.

In February 2023, both councils took the decision to fix and operate the waste treatment centre on Sinfin Lane, Derby but now the councils have announced they are formally in dispute over plans for the Sinfin New Waste Treatment facility.

In January 2024 Derbyshire County Council issued an invoice to the city council for £93.9m + VAT to recover its share of the costs of the project.

The city council disputes the validity of the invoice and has itself now triggered a notice of dispute, which includes the county’s refusal to formally include regular reviews of project progress, against the business case to fix and operate the facility.

On 24th May 2024, both councils met to try to resolve the dispute and agree terms, however have been unable to do so and will be entering the next stage of formal dispute resolution processes.
