The Environment Agency is minded to issue an environmental permit to MVV Environment Devonport Ltd’s application for an incinerator at North Yard, Devonport in Plymouth. The Agency is satisfied that the proposed facility will be constructed and operated in a way that will not significantly pollute the environment or harm human health.


Several responses from the public and other organisations have been received during the public consultation and technical determination period and this feedback has been taken into consideration during the draft decision making process and these are also reflected in the draft decision document.


The Environment Agency will now publish a draft decision document and draft permit.
“The draft documents show what conditions we have included within our draft decision and how we made our draft decision,” said Chris James for the Environment Agency.


The draft permit and decision document will be available for formal public scrutiny and comment before the Agency makes its final decision. This will run until Friday 3 February 2012. The consultation has been extended beyond the normal four week period to take account of the Christmas and New Year holidays.
