MVV Environment Ltd are proposing the incinerator is built in Algores Way at a site which is 750 metres from Thomas Clarkson Academy and 350 metres from The Eye Clinic.

Developers say there will be 'no smell' from the plant and it will create around 700 jobs while under construction, and then 40 full-time posts once it is up and running.
