Environcom investigated over planning breaches

Lincolnshire County Council is looking into a series of problems at waste electrical recycler Environcom after receiving a complaint from a member of the public.

The company’s premises in Grantham were damaged earlier this year in a fire, leading to the loss of one of its doors.

The council indicated that not all repairs had yet been carried out and that officers were looking into five planning breaches, including storage of waste materials.

Other suspected breaches include water drainage, signage and working out of hours.

The initial complaint was around noise levels emanating from the company’s building, and South Kesteven District Council’s environmental health department has been informed of the problem.

Environcom chief executive Sean Feeney said: “We are in discussion with the council regarding a number of new guidelines that have come in since our original development. We look forward to resolving these issues and finalising the updates to the site.”

The damaged occurred during a fire in May, the second blaze to have hit the firm this year.

After the second fire Feeney said Environcom holds regular meetings with the fire brigade to review the company’s systems.
