Incinerator Proposal – Emsrayne’s Lea Bank Energy Park (LBEP) (formerly known as Chiltern Green Energy Park)

We know of a proposal by a Bedfordshire-based developer, Emsrayne Ltd, to submit a planning application for an incinerator plant on green belt land owned by the Luton Hoo estate and situated on the Lower Harpenden Road at East Hyde.  The planning application is expected later this year and will be under the jurisdiction of Central Bedfordshire Council.  Harpenden Rural Parish Council has registered its interest in the scheme and will be seeking engagement in the planning process.  In the meantime, all Harpenden residents are encouraged to find out more about the proposals; shown here are the websites for both the developer and  a campaign group.
