Information for Stoneyhill Landfill (near Peterhead)

Status: Prevented
Planning Region: Scotland
Planning Sub-Region: Aberdeenshire
Operator: Suez Environment (formerly SITA)
Capacity: 60,000
Campaign Group(s): Peterhead Against Incineration (PAIN) and Green Alternatives to Incineration in Scotland (GAINS)
Notes: Plans appear to have been dropped in 2012. The ’resource recovery park’ would "include a mechanical biological treatment facility, an in-vessel composting unit and a gasification plant". SITA UK intends to submit a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) in late January / early February 2011 [Source]. The park was intended to process up to 100,000 tonnes of municipal waste, with MRW putting the capacity of the incinerator as 60,000 tonnes [Source]. (Entry updated 2012-12-04)

UKWIN (and therefore the UKWIN map) focuses on Municipal Waste Incinerators, whereas our colleagues at Biofuelwatch focus on biomass projects. If you are interested in waste wood or dedicated biomass incinerators then please see the Biofuelwatch map of UK Biomass Power Stations.

Please be aware: There is always room for improvement, so please send updates to coordinator@ukwin.org.uk. Existing Incinerator means a facility that is operational or under construction/commissioning. A Potential Incinerator is a facility where there is a proposal for an incinerator (e.g. planning application or planning consent) or other reason to believe an incinerator might be built/proposed in the future. A Prevented Incinerator is something which used to be a proposal or expected incinerator which we do not believe is currently being progressed (e.g. because the project was cancelled, planning permission refused, or years have gone by since the permission was granted without any progress) - in some cases a facility marked as prevented is being progressed without us being aware or is subsequently revived. Capacity is usually the permitted or maximum advertised capacity of the facility.
