Knight Welcomes Beeford Waste Plant Defeat

East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has welcomed as ‘the right decision’ the announcement that the applicant for a waste plant near the village of Beeford has decided to abandon the appeal against the refusal of planning permission by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council for an anaerobic digester.

Sir Greg said today: “The proposal was far too big and was in the wrong place. I am therefore delighted that the misguided plans to lodge an appeal against refusal of planning permission have been dropped”.

Sir Greg added: “I hope this is now the end of the matter and that the applicant does not seek to submit a further application for a slightly modified proposal on the same site. The local community is united in their opposition to such plans.”
