Although they have withdrawn from the Planning Inquiry it appears that Clean Power have not given up their attempt to develop a waste disposal site on Moor Street but are now trying a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.
SENT ON BEHALF OF DAVID HUDSON
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

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
