This scheme was recommended for approval by both planning Inspectors present at the public inquiry but the appeal was dismissed by the Secretary of State (Mr Eric Pickles MP).
The principal reason for the appeal being dismissed was related to impact on heritage assets. In his letter of 4 March 2014, paragraph 17 the Secretary of State said:
"While the Secretary of State accepts that each of these assets may well suffer from less than substantial harm if considered separately as being the only asset of any significance, he takes the view that, looking at the sum total of the impact on so many and varied assets, the harm caused is arguably greater than the sum of its parts."
Peel Energy has no current plans to progress this scheme further.
