A High Court judge has ruled that a decision made to grant planning approval to a biomass plant proposal in Trafford by the Communities Secretary Eric Pickles was sound. The judgement was made in the Manchester Civil Court on 24 February 2014.
Jon England, project manager at Peel Energy, said: “We now intend to focus our attention on completing the work necessary for the plant to be built so it can start generating renewable electricity for the homes and businesses of Greater Manchester.”
The Breathe Clean Air Group say they're disappointed: The reality of today’s decision means that an incinerator almost as tall as the Chill Factore will be built opposite the stadium of Salford Reds and Sale Sharks Rugby Clubs and only 500m from the nearest homes. It will be a smiling assassin.
The site is partially located in an Air Quality Management Area, where plans should be in place to reduce air pollution for public safety, not add to it.
