Wisbech Incinerator

Despite widespread opposition, the Medworth CHP Ltd energy from waste combined heat and power facility at Wisbech was granted permission by the Secretary of State on February 20, 2024.

The project was opposed by Fenland District Council, Wisbech Town Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Norfolk County Council, and the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk, as well as hundreds of local residents and local action groups.

Owing to the size and significance of the proposed development, the Planning Inspectorate, rather than any local authority, examined the application and made its recommendation to the Secretary of State for the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero Clare Coutinho MP who has made the decision to approve the proposal.
