Eco Sustainable solutions granted planning permission for £12m biomass facility

Eco Sustainable Solutions has been awarded planning permission for a £12m biomass power plant on the outskirts of Christchurch, Dorset.

 The facility will generate 3MW of electricity from 25,000 tonnes of waste wood a year, enough to power over 5,000 local homes.

A planning application for the facility was initially submitted in July 2007, but was only approved by Dorset County Council planning committee on 15 July 2011.

Eco Sustainable Solutions managing director Trelawney Dampney said: “Biomass plants make environmental and economic sense and we’re delighted that, finally, we have received approval for our proposal.

“It’s a win-win for everyone and we’re now looking forward to starting work on the plant and getting it up and running as quickly as possible.”
The facility is expected to be in operation in early 2013.
