West Sussex County Council Planning Department have asked Crouchland Biogas Ltd for further information and clarification on a number of points in their planning application. This information is expected to be submitted very soon.
It is hoped that the application will be able to be heard at the November Planning Committee, as it would be in the interests of all parties to bring this matter to a conclusion as soon as possible.
The Secretary of State is being contacted for a decision on the Environmental Impact Assessment status of the application. There is the potential for this to delay the determination of the application, depending on when a decision is made and what the decision is.
We feel it is very important to keep this case in the public eye and we urge objectors to write their views in letters for publication in the local press. It is important that a variety of people do this.
