Information for LRRE, Rear of 87 Beddington Lane / 79-85 Beddington Lane

Status: Prevented
Planning Region: London
Planning Sub-Region: South London
Operator: London Recycling and Renewable Energy Limited (Foresight Group LLP and potentially DRENL)
Capacity: 85,000 - 150,000
Campaign Group(s): Contact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: Advanced Thermal Treatment facility, presumably a gasification-type incinerator, possibly to treat biomass and low-grade waste wood. Planning permission granted on 17th September 2014 (refs D2014/69228/FUL and D2014/69227/FUL) [Source]. Intended to be instead of several previous planning permissions for the area, but unrelated to the nearby Viridor proposal. As of March 2016 the Foresight Group’s website listed the facility as having planning consent, but unlike other facilities it does not state a year by which it is due to become operational. According to Companies House, London Recycling and Renewable Energy Ltd was disolved on the 30th of July 2019 [Source]. (Entry updated 2020-02-03)

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.
