Sheffield Green Belt site protected from green waste recycling plant development

There’s no doubt that we need more green recycling plants, but at what cost?

The Yorkshire Post reported on a green recycling scheme that was refused permission, on the grounds that it was within Green Belt and that it would also have been too close to a local school and nursing home.

Surely there’s more appropriate sites for such amenities? It does make you wonder why the site was chosen in the first place.

Read the Yorkshire Post’s full report here, which also records a water wheel hydro-electricity project being given the go-ahead in the City.
