Old Peat Works

Keeping you informed – Old peat works – Swinefleet

Our role is to protect and improve the environment so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of a clean safe and healthy place to live.

We are responsible for granting or refusing environmental permits and regulating sites that deal with waste.  We have received an Environmental Permit application from 4Recycling Ltd, also known as 4R Group for an organic waste recycling plant at The Old Peat Works, Reading Gate, Swinefleet, DN17 4BL. The application number is EPR/GB3202XN/A001.


We are satisfied that the application contains the required information for us to start our detailed assessment and we will start public consultation on the application on

22 March 2019.


Attached is a newsletter which provides more detail on our role, the consultation process, and how to submit your comments to us about the application.

We hope you find this informative, and look forward to hear


ing your views during the consultation period.

Kind regards
