Planning Region: East Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Nottinghamshire
Operator: Veolia Environmental Services
Capacity: 210,000
Campaign Group(s): People Against Incineration (PAIN) and Mansfield Against Incineration (MAIN)
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 Previously proposed at Crown Farm, Forest Town, but due to local campaign (MAIN) the land was withdrawn from sale by Mansfield District Council.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)

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.
