Dockyard energy plan gets go-ahead

An energy-from-waste plant at Devonport Dockyard has been backed by planners in Plymouth.

South West Devon Waste Partnership, a collaboration between Plymouth City Council, Devon County Council and Torbay Council, commissioned MVV Environment Devonport in March 2011 to build and operate the plant.

The facility, which will also supply heat and electricity to the dockyard, was approved by the city’s planning committee.

South West Devon Waste Partnership project director Mark Turner said: “This is a vitally important and much needed project for Plymouth and the south-west Devon area.

“We welcome the planning committee’s decision which should now allow the project to proceed to construction and we will continue to work with the local community to address any ongoing concerns they may have.”
