Inspectorate queries waste-to-energy developer’s EIA proposals

The Planning Inspectorate has told the developer of a proposed 65MW waste-to-energy facility in Hampshire that the environmental assessment for the project must consider odour impacts and assess landscape and visual impacts beyond 15km of the site.

The inspectorate earlier this month published a scoping opinion, giving its view on the proposed content of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) for US company Wheelabrator’s proposed Wheelabrator Harewood Waste-to-Energy Facility.

The firm is proposing to develop the new waste-to-energy facility at the A303 Enviropark, near Andover. It would have a capacity of approximately 65MW gross electrical output, capable of producing low carbon electricity and heat through waste derived fuels that would be exported to the national grid.
