Consent was given today by the Government for the construction of a 60MW energy from waste generating station in Cheshire.

The proposed development at Lostock, Northwich, will generate enough power to supply 80,000 homes and create a total of 500 jobs during the construction period and a further 50 permanent operating posts.

A DECC spokesman said: “It is essential we have a balanced energy mix in the future to provide low cost, efficient energy to households and businesses.

“This plant takes waste and turns it into something of great value – enough power to supply 80,000 homes - and in addition creates jobs for the local community.”

A full and detailed public inquiry recommended that consent for the station be granted after hearing evidence about all aspects of the proposed development, including its potential health and visual impacts as well the implications for traffic safety and the local environment.
