Two year extension granted for enforcement at Crouchland Farm

CDC planning committee agreed today to a two year extension to the enforcement notice regarding the decommissioning of lagoon 3.

This now takes the date of compliance to May 2021 and will include the largest Digester 3, Lagoon 3, plus the Separator, Lagoon 4 and Pipework (all apparently needed for the decommissioning of lagoon 3).

So these parts of infrastructure will now remain for yet another 30 months, whilst funding and a contractor is hopefully found for the decommissioning process
