Environment Agency extends incinerator consultation

Story posted on

Westbury Town Council has welcomed the news that the Environment Agency has extended the consultation period for the proposed Westbury Incinerator (Permit Number: ERP/CP3803LV/A001).

The consultation will now close at 11:59pm on Sunday 21st February 2021.

The town council says, “The Environment Agency has told us that they wish to listen to the community’s views and remain transparent and open throughout the permit application process. They understand the current national lockdown will have implications for some people and may make it harder for them to have their say.

“Residents who recently received a postcard from the Environment Agency stating the original January closing date, should disregard this, as this was sent out before the extension was agreed.

“Residents wishing to comment on this consultation can do so by following this link https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/psc/ba13-4we-northacre-renewable-energy-limited/

“Westbury Town Council is currently considering its own response to this consultation and whilst we are always keen to hear the views of residents, we are not permitted to submit responses on behalf of residents.”
