Notes: It was reported in April 2015 that: "The developer...is drawing up a second planning application for the site" [Source, Source] but no sign of an application as of November 2016 and no reference to making use of the incinerator in the planning application the fire-damaged MRF on the adjacent site. Previous planning application put on hold indefinitely due to lack of environmental information in December 2014, with an expectation that the developer would apply with a new application taking account of the various changes to the proposal and their environmental impacts [Source]. Outline planning application (ref 13/00027/OUT) submitted January 2013 states that the Renewable Fuel Production and Recycling Facility (which already has planning consent) "will accept up to 120,000 tonnes per annum of the mixed domestic and commercial waste stream to produce approximately 50,000 tonnes per annum of biomass derived fuel", and that the fuel is "intended for use in a biomass powered energy generation facility, within the Resource Recovery Park". DRENL applied in December 2014 to allow waste from further afield at their RDF-production plant [Apps 14/00093&00094/WASVOC [Source]. (Entry updated 2016-11-08)
