Possible changes for Warminster biogas plant

Councillors are discussing a material amendment application for a Warminster, UK-based biogas plant, which was approved by Wiltshire Council in July last year.

Town councillors disapprove of the chosen 3-acre site on which the facility will be built, despite having welcomed a plan that will see the height of the biogas tanks reduced.

The project will see existing farm structures replaced with new ones, which will be supplied heat and electricity from the new biogas plant.

Speaking about the project committee chairman Cllr Martin Baker says: 'I wholeheartedly welcome the technology behind the plant. It's inevitable that this country will have to find alternative fuels, but I'm still not happy with the location.'

He went on to say: 'However, it will bring employment to the town and we haven't got any objections from residents like we have in the past.'

The Wiltshire Council will make a decision on the minor material amendment application before the end of March.
