Notts co-incinerator gets amber light

A proposed combined heat and power plant in Nottinghamshire has been given the provisional go-ahead by the Environment Agency.

The watchdog this week published a draft decision to permit a variation to the environmental permit held by R Plevin & Sons.

The variation would allow the firm to introduce a waste wood fired co-incinerator at its Crookford Hill site near Elkesley, Retford, primarily to raise heat for drying wood shavings in its animal bedding production facility.

Interested parties can now raise relevant local issues and applicable national legislation and guidance that the EA has not considered. 

Any comments should be made in writing by 6 February 2012 to:

 The Environment Agency, Permitting Support Centre, Environmental Permitting Team, Quadrant 2, 99 Parkway Avenue, Parkway Business Park, Sheffield, S9 4WF or by emailing

All correspondence should quote reference EPR/TP3098EU/V002
