The Planning Inspectorate has now completed the Examination of Riverside Energy Park. You can continue to view the Planning Inspectorate’s progress on this project on its website here, where you can also register for updates.

Our application for a Development Consent Order to construct the proposed Riverside Energy Park was accepted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate on 14th December 2018 and the examination was completed on 9th October 2019. The application documents are available on the Planning Inspectorate’s website. Find out more about the project timeline here.

There will now be a period of three months for the Examining Authority to write its report and make a recommendation to the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State will then have three months in which to make a decision. The deadline for the Planning Inspectorate to submit its recommendation is 9 January 2020.

Our proposals for Riverside Energy Park represent a huge step forward when it comes to meeting London’s waste management and energy generation needs.

London is facing a significant capacity gap in its ability to dispose of and treat all of its waste. Over two million tonnes of London’s waste is currently either landfilled or sent overseas.

The new Energy Park is an important part of the solution representing a huge step forward when it comes to meeting London’s waste management and energy generation infrastructure needs.

By employing a range of green technologies which are proven at scale - such as energy recovery, solar, anaerobic digestion, battery storage and combined heat and power infrastructure - we will be able to expand our ability to generate and provide clean, low carbon renewable energy to London’s homes and businesses.

In doing this, we will allow a lot more non-recyclable waste to be treated within London for the benefit of London. This will complement recycling, minimise landfill, take lorries off the roads and create new jobs.

This website details our proposals and explains the process we will be following to help this vision become a reality.
