Information for Hanley Swan Waste Incinerator, Hangmans Lane, Hanley Castle

Status: Potential
Planning Region: West Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Worcestershire
Operator: Mr. Peter Styles
Capacity: Unknown
Campaign Group(s): Contact to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: Incinerator built in 1970s and shut down in 1995. Certificate of lawful use issued in on appeal in October 2016 (appeal ref APP/E1855/X/16/3147848). The site may be developed for housing rather than re-opening or replacing the disused incinerator. It was stated by a representative of Mr Styles in October 2016 that: "Mr Styles is in conversation with a couple of parties who are interested in reopening as some sort of incinerator" [Source]. If the site were to be brought back into use as an incinerator then the operator would need to apply for a new environmental permit. (Entry updated 2016-11-08)
