Notes: Part of the £850m Nottinghamshire Waste PFI. Following a call-in inquiry the proposal was refused planning permission by the Secretary of State in May 2011 primarily due to "the evident conflict with the development plan’s requirements and the potential for harm to the integrity of habitat used by breeding woodlark and nightjar" [read the Decision Letter and Inspector’s Report]. Previously proposed at Crown Farm, Forest Town, but due to local campaign (MAIN) the land was withdrawn from sale by Mansfield District Council. (Entry updated 2012-10-25)
