Councillors have approved twenty million pound plans for a power plant in Shoreham in Sussex despite protests. Edgeley Green Power says it will create ninety jobs and generate power using renewable energy. But concerns have been raised about the smell and air pollution.
Protesters are expected to gather tonight at a meeting to discuss plans for a new biofuel plant outside Brighton and Hove.
The £20million power station in Shoreham will run on plant oils and animal fats. However, concerns have been raised over air pollution and the smell it could cause.
A planning application for the plant, which could provide electricity for 18,000 homes, will be considered at a meeting of Adur District Council at 7pm.
