The renewable energy firm behind a waste treatment plant bound for Northwich is establishing a local liaison committee to keep residents informed during the construction and commissioning processes.

DONG Energy’s vision for bioresource facility REnescience Northwich was unanimously approved by planners in early February.

With site preparation work due to begin shortly, committee members are sought to meet on a regular basis with the aim of ensuring the project proceeds with minimal impact and disruption to the community.

Flemming Kanstrup, from DONG Energy, said: “We know there is a great deal of interest in REnescience Northwich and the technology involved.

“We hope that people are keen to join the committee and take an active role in ensuring the smooth roll-out of the project.

“We expect construction work to cause minimal disruption and we are committed to maintaining regular communication with residents and businesses to answer any questions, listen to their feedback and keep them informed of progress.”

DONG Energy want to ensure all areas of interest are represented on the committee, but spots are limited.
