Notes: The proposal was unanimously rejected by Cheshire East Council’s planning committee in May 2010 [Source]. The Secretary of State dismissed Covanta’s planning appeal in July 2012, stating that "the proposal would conflict with the policy aims of Annex E of PPS10 in terms of visual intrusion, nature conservation, traffic and access, and air emissions (as they apply to traffic)" and that "the economic benefits of the appeal proposals have been overstated" [Source, Source].
