Roseland welcome government decision
"WASTE management and quarrying group Roseland have welcomed a government decision to lift a Direction imposed on Cornwall County Council preventing it from issuing planning consent for the company’s application for an integrated waste-management facility at Lean Quarry, Horningtops, near Liskeard."
The move clears the way for the Council to approve Roseland’s plans to develop the 36-acre site.
"Last September, Cornwall County Council’s Development Control Committee voted unanimously to grant approval for the scheme, subject to the Government allowing it to do so, however the Government Office for the South West (GOSW) issued a ‘holding’ notice until it had considered whether the application justified a public inquiry."
The GOSW has now decided that the application accords with national and regional planning policies and has given the green light to the County Council to deal with the application as it thinks fit.
"The waste-management scheme aims to help tackle Cornwall’s non-domestic waste mountain through increased recycling and by using residual waste to restore the quarry back to woodland and pasture. In addition, landfill gas generated by the disposal of the waste will help meet the quarry’s energy requirements."
