MP is leading objections on Shropshire biomass plant

Keith Wilson, of HLW Farms, has applied for planning permission to retain 17 biomass boilers at Old Springs Farm near Market Drayton.

The 11-megawatt biomass boiler plant was installed to heat floors within the agricultural buildings for the purpose of drying miscanthus (elephant grass) crop produced on the farm’s land.

A proportion of the output is also used to heat office, residential, and workshop space at the farm. Loggerheads Parish Council has objected to the planning application and Sir Bill Cash MP has agreed with the views and submitted a letter of objection in support of local residents.
