Update on the Clean Power application


Say No to Waste (SNOW) campaign continues as new  hazardous waste threat emerges
Say No to Waste (SNOW) campaign continues as new hazardous waste threat emerges

Although they have withdrawn from the Planning Inquiry it appears that Clean Power have not given up their attempt to develop a waste disposal site on Moor Street but are now trying a different route. The permit request covers hazardous waste which is very worrying as it may have  implications beyond the previous planning application (see notification below). Apologies if you are already on the EA circulation list.

The core SNOW* campaign committee is meeting this week to consider how we can continue to fight this.

Best wishes

Please accept my apologies – there was an error in my last email. The
application is to process hazardous waste – not non hazardous waste. Please
see revised email below.
Dear Cllr Harris

You may be aware that we have received an application for an environmental
permit to operate an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) to incinerate* and
process hazardous waste at a site on Moor Street, Brierley Hill, in the West
Midlands. The application has been made by Clean Power (UK) Ltd.

The consultation will open on Friday 23 May 2014 and close on Monday 30

You can view the application for free by visiting the below offices:

Further information about the Clean Power (UK) Ltd proposal is also
available on our website at

Clean Power (UK) Ltd will need to obtain planning permission from Dudley
Metropolitan Borough Council before this plant can be built. The planning
process determines whether the development is an acceptable use of land and
considers a broad range of matters such as visual impact, need for the
development, traffic and access – all of which does not form part of our
decision-making process.

Yours sincerely 

David Hudson
Environment Manager
Midlands – Central Area
