A decision on controversial plans for a £300million gasifier power station at Sutton Bridge will be delayed until at least September.
South Holland District Council revealed today (Friday) it is seeking more information from the applicant, EnergyPark Sutton Bridge, and the plan will no longer be listed for a verdict at its August 27 meeting.
Opponents have welcomed the council’s step but say their fight against the plant goes on.
Great-granny Shirley Giles, who scuppered a previous planning consent for the plant by going to the High Court, said: “I really won’t be happy until the thing is quashed entirely or EnergyPark Sutton Bridge go somewhere else.”
A council spokesman said: “After careful consideration council planning officers have decided not to report the application for a renewable energy plant at Sutton Bridge to the planning committee meeting on Wednesday, August 27.
“After considering both the details of the revised submission and analysing the re-consultation exercise, officers are seeking clarification on certain points, as well as some additional information, from the applicant EnergyPark Sutton Bridge to ensure the committee has the full range of information when considering this application.”
