The Planning Inspectorate has now set dates for the Examination of Riverside Energy Park. You can view the Examination Timetable on the Planning Inspectorate’s website here, where you can also register for updates.

Cory has submitted an application for development consent to the Secretary of State. The Planning Inspectorate accepted the application for examination on 14th December 2018. Key stakeholders in the application process include the London Borough of Bexley, the Greater London Authority, Dartford Borough Council, Kent County Council and the local community.

Our new Energy Park is being proposed for a site on Norman Road in Belvedere, to the west of our existing Riverside Resource Recovery Facility (RRRF), which has been operating successfully and cleanly since 2011.

If we obtain planning consent, the proposed Energy Park would complement RRRF and comprise a range of technologies including waste energy recovery, anaerobic digestion (of food and green waste), solar panels and battery storage.

The technologies at the proposed Energy Park would together generate up to 96 MW of electricity. Riverside Energy Park could generate enough energy to power the equivalent of 140,000 homes. The new facility would also include on-site infrastructure to enable heat energy to be supplied to local housing.
