July 2014 The Environment Agency refuse Permit: Cres Biogas EA Refusal Notice
The EA have refused Cres Biogas Ltd’s application for an environmental Permit at the ex-MoD site in Twemlow, near Holmes Chapel.
“The environmental impact of the proposed development in this location cannot be satisfactorily mitigated in this location due to its impact on sensitive receptors.” Planning liaison officer EA 8th July 2014
The Environment Agency say they “are making progress with the permit application. The latest version of the odour management plan has been assessed and we are in the process of taking the findings of this assessment into account. We hope to conclude our judgement over the odour management plan as soon as possible …. Unfortunately we are not in a position at this stage to provide certainty on the fate of the OMP or wider permit application until the above assessments and conclusions are complete.”
