Derby EfW case closer to inquiry

The Planning Inspectorate (PI) has written to all interested parties in the Derbyshire energy-from-waste case in the run-up to an inquiry.

Derby City Council refused planning permission for a gasification and mechanical biological treatment facility at Sinfin Lane. It was turned down on the grounds it might divert efforts away from waste reduction, reuse and recycling because of its size. Annual tonnages involved are 190,000.

Resource Recovery Solutions (RRS) successfully appealed the decision, and the case went to the secretary of state to be re-determined.

The PI, working on behalf of the secretary of state, has now written to RSS (owned by Shanks Group), the city council, Derbyshire County Council, Derby Friends of the Earth, local councillors and the Sinfin, Spondon and All Against Incineration group (SSAIN).

It is requesting that the parties agree deadlines for submission of evidence to the inquiry.
