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)
