Sinfin Lane Waste Treatment Facility, Derby

Resource Recovery Solutions (United Utilities / Interserve)

RPS provided planning advice for a 190,000tpa Waste Treatment Facility and Visitor and Education Centre at the site, approximately 3.3km south of Derby City Centre.

Resource Recovery Solutions was selected as the preferred bidder by Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council to take the joint waste management contract forward. Part of the waste solution is to develop a new Waste treatment Facility and Visitor and education Centre at the site, approximately 3.3km south of Derby City Centre.

RPS was commissioned to submit a full planning application supported by an Environmental Impact Assessment.

An alternative site search considered 438 sites within the County using a widely accepted methodology that conforms to policy context and PPS10 in particular in order to demonstrate the suitability of the Sin Fin Lane site.

RPS' Environmental Impact Assessment considered the environmental effects occurring at the site itself and the surroundings, and developed suitable mitigation measures. Our Environmental Statement shows that the proposed development will result in beneficial effects by diverting waste from landfill, creating employment and using waste as a resource by recovering energy.
