PLANNING APPROVAL FOR ENERGY RECOVERY FACILITY AT KINGMOOR PARK

PLANNING APPROVAL FOR ENERGY RECOVERY FACILITY AT KINGMOOR PARK

Today, Cumbria County County Council’s Planning Committee resolved to grant planning permission for the development of an energy recovery facility at Kingmoor Park, Carlisle.

The Applicant, Kingmoor Park Properties Ltd and Fortum (Carlisle) Limited, are delighted by the Council’s resolution to approve the application.

 A spokesperson for the Applicant said;

“We are delighted by Cumbria County Council’s decision to approve planning permission for the Kingmoor ERF. This decision takes us a big step closer to realising the development. This new facility, which provides a more environmentally friendly alternative to landfill, has many key benefits for the area.  Once it is operational, up to 40 new, permanent jobs will be created. The power plant will also generate up to 22MW of low carbon renewable energy to local industry, or enough to supply over 45,000 homes. It will secure approximately £80m of inward investment which will be directed into the local area. We look forward to ensuring that these key benefits become a reality”.
