22MW Energy Recovery Facility

Details & Location

Carlisle, Cumbria



Stephenson Halliday recently coordinated an Environmental Impact Assessment and prepared all planning work for an Energy Recovery Facility at Kingmoor Park Industrial Estate, Carlisle. The Energy Recovery Facility will divert up to 195,000 tonnes of waste from landfill or export each year, with the ability to generate up to 22MW of electricity and power up to 45,000 homes.

We coordinated and managed a team of specialist consultants to produce a robust Environmental Statement and the EIA team worked closely with our client to develop a well-designed proposal based upon onsite constraints and opportunities. We ensured consistency throughout the ES, produced the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, Landscape Plan, introductory and concluding chapters, and reviewed the technical chapters, assessments and appendices. We also produced the Non-Technical Summary and the Planning Statement for submission in support of the planning application.

In addition, we coordinated the community consultation process, whereby we organised and attended a public exhibition for local residents and key stakeholders. Following the exhibition we reviewed and considered feedback and detailed the findings with a Statement of Community Consultation.

The planning application was submitted to Cumbria County Council in June 2016 and was approved by the planning committee in October 2016. Stephenson Halliday are now assisting the applicant through the discharge of pre-commencement conditions process.
