Biomass Power Plant
A pre-planning application consultative document has been published for the erection of a biomass power plant in Marlpit Lane immediately
to the north of the existing amenity tip. This matter is also in Westbourne Parish but may have visual, pollution and traffic implications so far as this parish is concerned.
The proposed plant is relatively small, to generate 1.25 MW, will operate continuously 24 hours per day and when operational will require 4 deliveries of recycled wood daily and employ up to 15 people. No doubt we shall receive further details when an application is submitted.
I am pleased to inform you that Louise Goldsmith, our County Councillor, has made enquiries of the County Planning Officer and informs me that the proposed developer has decided not to procede with the development. I feel that this is a relief to us all. Many thanks for your observations and assistance.
