Council given deadline over AD plant plans

A county council has been given two weeks to respond to villagers’ concerns about plans for a new waste plant or face a judicial review.

According to the local newspaper, more than 100 villagers in Barrow and Denham, near Bury St Edmunds, have united against plans for an anaerobic digestion plant which was approved by Suffolk County Council in June this year. They claim the facility would adversely affect tranquil countryside and their quality of life.

David Cousins, a parish councillor for Denham, said he hoped the council would still change its mind ahead of the two-week deadline.

“We have been fighting this thing for two years,” he told the paper. “We tried in vain to get Suffolk County Council to listen to what we were saying. It went out to consultation but didn’t take any of our views into consideration.”

A council spokeswoman was quoted as saying it could not comment further at this stage but would respond to concerns.
