Planning Approval achieved for three Anaerobic Digestor Sites

E4environment are celebrating their recent successes in gaining planning approval for various Anaerobic Digestor sites in the South West in partnership with our client Greener For Life Energy Ltd. These include permission for a 200kW plant at Edgeworthy Farm in Mid-Devon, which was won on Appeal with a full award of costs being made in favour of the appellant against the Council. Shortly after we received notification of the Appeal success, Mid Devon Council considered an application for the installation of a 500kW AD plant at Red Linhay, near Tiverton.  With narrow lanes and with the site being close to the Grand Union Canal and we and the client worked alongside the Planning Authority to develop landscaping options that would provide screening and discussed and agreed to developing passing places on the approach road.  The application was Approved at Committee on 18th June. The third recent success was for another 500kW AD plant at Manor Farm, Seaborough in Dorset.  This site is within the Dorset AONB with a bridleway going through it so there were numerous potentially tricky issues to be considered and addressed alongside the usual concerns of potential impact on the road network, landscaping, the potential for nuisance of noise, etc. The Planning Committee Approved the application on 15th May. Specialising in the planning and permitting process for on-farm AD sites, E4environment is thrilled to have assisted our clients through this process to each successful conclusion.
