Viridor planning application appeal inquiry date set

The Planning Inspectorate has set an official inquiry date into the planning application appeal made by waste firm Viridor against Oxfordshire County Councils decision to refuse its plans for the construction of an energy from waste facility Ardley.

The date will be July 6 2010 and has come after discussions among all interested parties, with the inquiry estimated to last 10 days.

Appointed as the preferred bidder in September 2009, Viridor was denied planning permission in October, although planning officers recommended it for approval.

The Planning Inspectorate has invited all interested parties to submit draft statements outlining their position by April 7, two weeks before the pre-inquiry meeting will take place on April 21.

Viridor project manager Robert Ryan said: Were confident we can demonstrate the case for our proposals, which have been designed to provide a safe, cost-effective and much-needed solution to Oxfordshires residual waste treatment needs in line with the local, regional and national waste strategy and planning policies.

Virirdors proposed EfW facility has been designed to process up to 300,000 tonnes of residual, non-recyclable waste. The plant had also been designed to create enough electricity from the waste to power more than 24,000 homes.
