An alternative access had been proposed for an anaerobic digester which would not require use of a busy roundabout.
The proposed access for the AD plant at Ireton’s Way in Chatteris would bypass the A142 roundabout.
Last June, Pretoria Energy Ltd was given the green light to build the plant despite objections from nearby residents about traffic and concerns from Mepal, Sutton and Witcham parish councils.
The application says: “The condition ensures that the current site access is not used until suitable upgrading works are completed.
“However, a safe alternative access to the site has been proposed and accepted in principle which does not require the use of the roundabout access from the A142 and therefore should not prohibit construction.
“No construction traffic are to use the roundabout access until the agreed highways improvement works are completed.
“No work shall commence on the roundabout access until a detailed engineering scheme has been submitted and agreed with the local planning authority detailing layout, level, construction type and drainage.”
