Wormslade Anaerobic Digester Planning Application – Deadline for Comment 2nd Feb 2024

Wormslade Anaerobic Digester
Deadline for Comments 2nd Feb 2024

Website link to all applications:



This planning application was orginally granted Planning Permission on the 30th June 2016, with further material and non-material amendments passed on the 23rd March 2017 and 7th February 2019, although no obvious work on the site has taken place after those dates.

Three new applications have been submitted since. These are as follow:



Certificate of Lawfulness for Proposed Use or Development for an anaerobic digester facility pursuant  S.73 permission re 17/00037/WASVOC as amended by Non-Material Amendment ref 18/00049/WASNMA

The background to this is that the original proposer is no longer trading and a new developer/operator has come forward to take up the project. The rationale is that the planning permission is still Extant and can still lawfully go ahead.



Variation to Condition 2  (Revised Approved Plans/Drawing of planning permission 17/00037/WASVOC as amended by Non-Material Amendment ef. 18/00049/WASNM

The Planning Statement associated with this application details the amendments and Appendices show graphically the layout changes. Whilst minor in detail they do include the introduction of lightning conductors which are now required under new safety regulations.



Variation of Condition 2  (timing of access construction and off-site highway improvements works ) of Planning Permission ref. 17/00037/WASVOC, as amended by Non-Material Amendment ref. 1800049/WASNMA

This refers to ‘delaying’ the inclusion of the A508 turning off and joining splays at the outset of heavy vehicle movement (principally earth moving and concrete mixers) but will be completed ahead of actual construction – and operation thereof – of the AD plant.


All members of the public are welcome to comment on the applications and can do so via an online form or emailing: mwapps@northnorthants.gov.uk or writing to Minerals and Waste Planning Services North Northamptonshire Council One Angel Square Angel Street Northampton NN1 1ED

This consultation closes on 2nd February 2024
