Walker Morris advises Peel Environmental on its planning application to build an AD facility
Planning lawyers from Walker Morris have advised Peel Environmental on its successful planning application to build a £23.5m anaerobic digestion (AD) facility at a site in North Selby, York.
City of York Council recently granted permission to Peel Environmental’s plans for an AD and horticultural glasshouse facility on the former mine site in Wheldrake.
The project will use AD to treat 60,000 tonnes of organic commercial and industrial waste per year, generating low-carbon, renewable electricity to be exported to the National Grid and able to power around 3,500 homes. It will also create around 30,000 tonnes of digestate each year for use on agricultural land as a biofertiliser.
A horticultural glasshouse, which will use some of the heat produced, will be developed alongside the facility and operated by Howden-based specialist Plant Raisers to propagate mainly tomato plants.
The Walker Morris team was led by director Alison Ogley, which has specialist expertise in renewable energy planning.
