Notes: SBOS gasification-type incineration. Planning application submitted in October 2011 and refused in June 2012, following the advice of the Planning Officer that it should be refused because: "The applicant has failed to demonstrate that there is a strategic need for an additional waste management facility in the Borough, and failed to submit sufficient information on matters such as the efficiency of the technology, whether an appropriate site selection search was undertaken, and where the waste will come from within the local area" [See planning application, See Committee Report]. The site now has planning permission for a Policing facility [Source]. (Entry updated 2013-06-18)

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.
