Planning application: "Emsrayne Renewable Energy Ltd are planning to submit a proposal to Central Bedfordshire to build a state of the art energy park at New Mill End. The facility will process around 500,000 tonnes of waste per year, generating up to 49MW of power - enough to supply over 60,000 homes. It will also generate heat which will be supplied to local farms, businesses and homes."

Nick can you tell me the details of your action group? I'd be interested in supporting you and taking this up at St Albans Council.

I live in New Mill End this plant will be in my back garden basically this is no location for recycling of any scale let alone this with limited road access and its at the bottom of a valley the very worst place for incineration. The list of issues is very long but we have an action group as it will destroy ours and our neighbours homes this is a massive industrial plant not some thing you should be placing in the countryside.
