Plans Submitted for Plymouth Incinerator

MVV Environment Devonport Ltd has submitted a planning application for an Energy from Waste plant with Combined Heat and Power at North Yard, Devonport to manage the residual waste from Plymouth, Devon and Torbay on behalf of the South West Devon Waste Partnership.

MVV reviewed its initial proposals following extensive public consultation in February and the revised scheme now forms part of the planning application. 

Paul Carey Managing Director also announced that MVV would be holding a further series of public exhibitions to let people see what changes had been made and to highlight the main features of the planning application.

The planning application consists of a very large series of documents and drawings and is now available for public inspection, both on Plymouth City Council’s website and MVV’s own website.
