Renewable energy park in Barnsley set for approval

Have your say

Plans for a renewable energy park in Barnsley – which more than 400 people have objected to – are set to be given the go-ahead tomorrow.

The plans for land off Houghton Main Colliery Roundabout, on Park Spring Road, were previously rejected.

The plant would treat 150,000 tonnes of biomass a year for recycling.

Concerns have been raised the site is unsuitable, about pollutants, air quality and public health.

Planners recommend approval with conditions.
