Planning Permission refused July 2012


Location: adjacent to Junction 18 Midpoint, Cledford Lane, Middlewich

Capacity: 390,000 tonnes per annum

Developer: Covanta Energy

What’s the plan? In March 2009, Covanta Energy put in planning permission to build a 390,000 tonne EfW (Energy from Waste) incinerator next to Junction 18 Midpoint in Middlewich. If the plans get the green light, this could mean that Middlewich will be home to not only a landfill site at Kinderton Lodge, but also an incinerator. The decision to approve or refuse the planning application will be made by Cheshire East Council’s Strategic Planning Group.

Campaign update: No Incinerator in Middlewich

Brilliant news for Middlewich as Eric Pickles the Secretary of State announced that he had refused planning permission for an incinerator in Middlewich.
