A decision on whether Medworth Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power Facility can go ahead is due by Wednesday, February 21.

Fenland District Council was among a group of consultees recently asked to provide responses to additional questions from the Secretary of State.

In its reply, the council said: "Fenland District Council maintains its strong objection in principle to the proposed Medworth Scheme which reflects the significant concerns of the local community."

The council has been asked to update on its position regarding 'a right of access over Algores Way,' which is required by the applicant to carry out the plan.

The council's reply said: "The council will not voluntarily give Temporary Possession Rights to the applicant given the council's objection in principle to the development.

"The applicant is fully aware of this and hence the applicant has not made an approach to reach an agreement."
