Pegasus Group were instructed to act as the lead planning advisor for a full planning application for a 1.5 MW Anaerobic Digestion facility at Pure Malt Products, Haddington, East Lothian. The proposed facility would digest in excess of 25,000 tpa of residual on-site waste at the Pure Malt site. The proposal shall enable the client to continue to manage its own waste given the pending changes to legislation, preventing the spreading of its waste product ‘draff’ being spread as compost on land.
The project included the writing of the Planning Statement, incorporating Design and Access arrangements, along with the provision of planning support throughout the document production phase and application process.
Given the facility’s location in Scotland it was essential that our team have a comprehensive understanding of Scottish Planning Legislation.
