Reversal on Westbury waste facility

Council votes against Northacre plan
By Sarah Pearce,

Wiltshire Council's Strategic Planning Committee has voted against approving a planning application from Northacre Renewable Energy for an energy from waste facility in Westbury.

The final decision about whether to grant planning permission will now pass to an independent planning inspector acting on behalf of the Secretary of State.

The committee was minded to refuse the application based on the grounds that it does not represent sustainable development.

The committee had previously resolved to approve the application on 22 June 2021, and then revisited the decision on 20 April 2022 to consider changes since the original resolution was made.
