Pegasus Group was retained to coordinate the submission of a planning application for 14.5MW Energy from Waste plant, located on the Hams Hall Distribution Centre, near Birmingham, on behalf of our clients Rolton Kilbride. At Hams Hall, there was an existing substation adjacent to the site, with the Hams Hall Distribution Centre being a very busy and vibrant estate servicing several large companies such as BMW and Sainsburys.
Pegasus Group was responsible for the project management of the application and coordination of the Environmental Impact Assessment. We also contributed the Landscape and Heritage Chapters of the Environmental Statement, as well as creating photo montages of the proposed facility. We worked closely with technical consultants, particularly Air Quality and Transport as these were key disciplines discussed throughout the course of the application.
Part way through the original determination period, the technology of the facility was changed, which required a re-design to the site layout and changes to the highways access. Pegasus coordinated the resulting submission of Supplementary Environmental Information (SEI) for consideration by Warwickshire County Council. We held a second round of public consultations and underwent negotiation with the District Authority (North Warwickshire) who were opposed to the scheme.
Pegasus Group and our clients responded to queries, comments and objections from residents and Parish Councils to demonstrate that the proposals would not have significant environmental effects, and successfully secured Planning Permission at committee in February 2017.
Pegasus Group are now retained to manage the discharge of conditions, and have won an ongoing portfolio of similar schemes from the same clients, who were very pleased with the result.
