Crouchland Bio Gas UPDATE - Appeal Decision



The Planning Inspector has issued her decision in respect of the Certificate of Lawfulness for the proposed use as an Anaerobic Digestion facility with unrestricted throughput of imported waste or other material and the export of gas and digestate. Whilst the Appeal was upheld in part, she has ruled that the import of waste for the AD is unlawful and that the permissions granted are for use ancillary to the agricultural use of Crouchland Farm.
