New Barnfield Planning Application
On the 24 October 2012 the committee meeting (of the Development Control Committee) considered the planning application for an energy from waste facility at New Barnfield. The committee passed a resolution to grant planning permission and the application was then referred to the Secretary of State for their consideration. On Monday 28th January 2013 we received a letter from the Secretary of State advising the application will be called in. The application will now be considered at a Public Inquiry. Further details of the timetable for the inquiry will be published here once available.
The application, which was submitted on 15 November 2011 by Veolia Environmental Services Ltd, seeks planning permission for the demolition of existing library and training buildings and the construction and operation of a recycling and energy recovery facility for the treatment of municipal, commercial and industrial wastes together with ancillary infrastructure including bulking/transfer facilities, administration/visitor centre, landscaping, habitat creation, drainage and highway improvement works on land at New Barnfield, Travellers Lane, Hatfield, Hertfordshire.
