Residents fighting a proposed gasifier power station will go ahead with an A17 car ‘procession’ on Saturday despite the district council delaying its verdict on the £300million plan.

South Holland District Council’s planning committee was expected to decide the EnergyPark Sutton Bridge application on July 30.

A council official confirmed today (Monday) the application will not go to the committee that day.

Protesters are due to hand a petition, signed by more than 900 people, to the council tomorrow and, on Saturday morning, will take to their cars for a procession on Bridge Road, the main road through the village, and part of the A17.

Resident Jenny Rowe said: “This won’t be the last protest we will be doing – we will be doing others as well.

“We are not going to let it rest. We need South Holland District Council to realise that this is the wrong location for this plant.”

l South Holland District Council gave planning approval to the gasifier last year, but that decision was overturned at judicial review – costing council tax payers £10,500.
