Notes: David Milliband approved "Energy Park" on 4th November 2009 [Source]. According to the planning statement "approximately 540,000 tonnes of material will be fed through the combustion process at maximum operating conditions" [Source]. A non-material amendment was submitted in relation to access in November 2014 (ref 14/02058/NONMAT). In March 2018 it was reported that: "In October 2017, KNM Group awarded US$454 million engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) contract to China Western Power Industrial Co Ltd (CWPI) for the project" and that "Construction activities are expected to commence in 2018, and are expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2021." [Source]. In July 2019 three planning conditions were discharged in relation to this proposal [Ref: 19/00467/DISCHG]. In January 2020 Peterborough Council stated that: "Planning permission 08/01081/ELE was acknowledged on 24 September 2014 as having been implemented. More recently, the proposal was subject to an amendment (ref. 18/01259/DISCHG permitted 10 May 2019) which required a number of other conditions to be re-discharged. These have now been discharged, and the amended scheme can be constructed." (Entry updated 2020-02-03)

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.
