Information for Shireoaks RDF Energy Plant, site of the former recycling plant and current Waste Transfer Station, Shireoaks Road, Worksop

Status: Prevented
Planning Region: East Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Nottinghamshire
Operator: Kilbride Infrastructure, possibly in partnership with Biomass Power Ltd
Capacity: 92,000
Campaign Group(s): Worksop Against Incineration (WAI).
Notes: According to local campaigners the new land owner of the site is now intending to use the site for waste management purposes other than incineration but the campaigners remain vigilant. Scoping request submitted to Nottinghamshire County Council in January 2014 for an RDF-burning incinerator, but planning application has not been submitted. The site has a previous planning consent for a low-grade wood power plant, but this consent was never implemented and may have lapsed. (Entry updated 2015-03-24)

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.
