2020/0657/03 (2020/CM/0045/LCC) - Mr Brian McCabe - Change of use from Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) facility to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF); increase of waste throughput to 150,000 tonnes per annum; revision to operating hours and minor ancillary revisions to site infrastructure - Land And Buildings, Gibbet Lane, Shawell. pdf icon PDF 748 KB


That the application 2020/0657/03 (2020/CM/0045/LCC) be refused.


Reason for decision


The proposed development would result in a strategic facility on a greenfield site in a remote rural location, contrary to policy W3 of the Leicestershire Minerals and Waste Local Plan. The site is poorly located in respect to waste arisings and to sustainable transport choices. The proposal lacks any demonstrable colocation benefits and involves the exportation of the vast majority of waste outputs by HGV to distant and dispersed locations. Furthermore, it has not been demonstrated as to why the facility could not be located in the urban areas. Therefore, the application, if approved would be contrary to policy W3.
