Have your say

Councillors have approved plans to install a biomass boiler on a farm.

MHH Biomass will be allowed to use the boiler to heat Prospect Farm in Kirk Edge Road, High Bradfield.

The firm will also be allowed to dry farm products include cattle bedding, hay, oilseed rape and sawdust generated from on-farm activities.

Residents objected to the plans, citing concerns about industrialisation of the green belt.

The plans initially said the boiler would be used to dry aggregates, which would then be supplied to the construction industry.
