Birmingham waste centre rejected

Plans for a waste recycling facility have been rejected by Birmingham City Council after planners decided it could be a health hazard.

FM Conway’s proposals for the centre near Wood Lane, Erdington, Birmingham, were rejected by the council’s planning committee which decided that the scheme would be too near to a petrol station.

The committee’s decision statement said: “The proposal would result in a development that would normally be occupied by people, within the Development Proximity Zone of a Large Scale Petrol Storage Site.

“This would represent an unacceptable risk to public safety and is contrary to Policy 8.38 of the Birmingham Unitary Development Plan 2005.”
