Notes: Planning application approved in October 2019 (19/00027/WASFUL) [Source]. Proposal announced in January 2019 for a combustion plant, which is presumably a conventional moving grate mass-burn incinerator. In May 2020 Corby Ltd put in an application to discharge a number of the planning conditions (20/00025/WASDOC). Not to be confused with the Clean Power Properties gasification proposal proposed within the same site footprint which had a lower stack and building height. (Entry updated 2020-06-16)

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 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.
