Stephenson Halliday is delighted by Cumbria County Councils resolution to grant planning permission for the development on an energy recovery facility in Kingmoor, Carlisle.
The Kingmoor ERF involves the construction of a facility which would receive up to 195,000 tonnes per year of refuse derived fuel (RDF) generated within Cumbria and the surrounding area. The power plant would create up to 40 new skilled long term jobs within the local area. During the construction phase a further 100+ jobs would be created. In total the power plant would require over £80 million of direct investment and once operational will generate up to 22MW.
Stephenson Halliday undertook an EIA for the proposal, co-ordinating the ES and providing the landscape and visual impact assessment for the site and the provision of post-submission management services.
