In quoting existing capacity for EfW has account been taken of unbuilt plants with planning permission, eg the combined heat and power plant of up to 15,000tpa proposed by Potters in Welshpool?
Plants were considered which are either built, in construction, or that had discharged all of their planning permission conditions.
Plants were considered which are either built, in construction, or that had discharged all of their planning permission conditions. The planning consent for the Potters Welshpool facility has been considered as a ‘low possibility’ development within our modelling. The original permission, approved in 2014 only approved an outline scheme that did not provide any details of the technology, environmental compliance measures, building dimensions and operating parameters. This position remains as at October 2020 and therefore the scheme has not been included within our modelling which only included facilities that are either currently operational, in the commissioning phase (yet to be fully operational) or that a full planning permission has been granted including evidence of all appropriate conditions being approved.
