Two councils oppose 24/7 renewable energy plant with 65m chimney in Swanscombe
PLANS to build a 24/7 renewable energy plant with a huge 65m chimney in Swanscombe are being opposed by two councils.
Teal Energy Ltd has submitted plans to Dartford Council for the development - which would produce renewable energy from non-recyclable waste - off Manor Way to the north of Galley Hill Road.
Proposals say an average of 108 HGV journeys would be made in and out of the site during an average 12-hour day.
Both Dartford and Swanscombe and Greenhithe Council oppose the plans, which will be discussed at Dartford Council’s development control board next Thursday.
Dartford Council officer Sonia Bunn said: “I consider the proposed waste to energy plant is not located in a sustainable location and will generate an unacceptable level of heavy goods vehicles on local roads which will have a detrimental impact on the amenity of the surrounding area.”
