Campaigners are gearing up for the next round in their fight against a waste recovery park at Brookfield Plantation on the outskirts of Corby.

The proposals are to be debated at a meeting of Corby Council’s development control committee on Tuesday, August 19.

Opponents say that the recovery park would lead to the destruction of 101 acres of woodland, cause an increase in traffic and create noise and odours.

Gretton Brook Estates, which is seeking planning permission for the scheme, says the park, which will enable companies to use energy created on site from recycled waste, will create about 800 jobs during its 10-year construction period.

The developers have already put forward a raft of new ideas to address concerns raised by residents.
