– Trafford’s planning committee unanimously voted to reject Peel Energy’s plans to build a biomass energy power plant near Barton Bridge in Davyhulme, Manchester, the Messenger Newspapers reported Nov. 11.
The committee rejected the plans as there remained “genuine and significant public concern of perceived impact on public health.”
Objectors stressed the proposed site was too close to the residential area and its fumes could particularly affect the children living nearby, according to the article.
Jon England, Peel Energy’s project manager, said the company would decide what to do after it looks into the committee’s official report.
