Biomass power station decision in March?

Have your say

Plans for a £300million biomass power station at Wingland are likely to go to South Holland’s planning committee for a decision on March 20.

Planning committee chairman Roger Gambba-Jones said the committee’s debate planned for February 20 has been postponed by a delay in responses from official consultees.

Opponents including BATI (Bridge Against The Incinerator) and Sutton Bridge Parish Council are taking their protests to the council offices in Spalding.

BATI chairman Craig Jackson said his members will question council cabinet members on February 19 and Sutton Bridge parish councillor Jenny Rowe will make her council’s case at the planning committee.

Coun Rowe says the power station technology is untested and there are real fears over air quality and public health.

She said: “We shall fight it all of the way.”
