A parish council may launch a legal fight against South Holland District Council over its decision to grant planning permission for a biomass gasifier power plant on industrial land at Wingland.

Sutton Bridge Parish Council last year set aside a £10,000 fighting fund to try to overturn the consent given to EnergyPark Sutton Bridge, but waited until a formal decision notice was issued on January 8 before taking its first step.

Parish clerk Suzanne England said they are taking legal advice on the possibility of instigating a judicial review, which will hopefully come in time for the January 28 meeting of the parish council so councillors can decide what to do next.
