Halstead: County councillors approve power plant amendment
1:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
Councillors voted to approve an amended planning application for a controversial power plant development.
Essex County Council (ECC) approved the plans for an anerobic digestion plant on the Bluebridge Industrial Estate, off Colchester Road, Halstead, on Friday.
Building work on the site started in June - once completed the plant could be used by as many as 41 HGVs each day.
Opponents of the project fear the plant will cause traffic chaos to Halstead town centre.
The three-and-a-half acre plant will cost about £11million to build.
