Prism Planning and JFS & Associates are celebrating after getting planning permission for a 1.5MW Anaerobic Digester to process food waste from nearby Leeming Bar. The consent was granted by North Yorkshire County Council at their planning meeting on 25th March. The decision marked the end of a long running application which saw the layout and configuration of the site redesigned to prevent interference with the radar emissions from RAF Leeming whose main runway passes close to the site. The plant will process around 50,000 tonnes of food waste produced by nearby food and drink businesses with the material being brought to the site via tankers. This is the 8th anaerobic digestion scheme that Prism have obtained consent for in the last couple of years, making us one of the country’s leading practitioners and acknowledged experts in this field.
