Notes: Planning permission refused for gasification-type incinerator on appeal in August 2015 (Appeal Ref APP/H4315/A/14/2224529, See UKWIN article). This was a hybrid application, and the Inspector’s Decision allowed a recycling facility to move from Merton Street to the application site. The company has links to Centralgrange Environmental Waste Ltd (CEW), who submitted an application in December 2011 for a Batch Oxidation Gasification incinerator on the Former Ravenhead Glass Warehouse, Lock Street [See application]. Planning permission for the CEW application was refused by St Helens Council on 2nd May 2012 and was not appealed [Decision Notice]. Not to be confused with the Organic Waste Management (St Helens) Ltd proposal on the same site that was refused in September 2012. (Entry updated 2015-08-06)
