A CONTROVERSIAL application to install a biomass energy plant at Greenham will be decided by councillors this week, and is recommended for approval by officers.

Last year Torftech Energy brought proposals forward for a 0.8ha biomass gasifier on land south of Buckner Croke Way, Greenham Business Park.

Plans attracted opposition from residents after concerns that they were not sufficiently consulted.

Greenham Parish Council also objected to the plans for the sustainable energy plant amid fears of clogging up nearby roads and a lack of information.

West Berkshire Council will decide the fate of the application at a western area planning committee meeting at Newbury’s Council Offices on Wednesday at 6.30pm.
