Residents and organisations currently have the opportunity to learn more about proposed plans for Riverside Energy Park in Belvedere.

Cory Riverside Energy ‘Cory’, the recycling, energy recovery and resource management company, has launched a second public consultation on its plans.

Following an initial consultation that was held in May, Cory is now running this next and final phase of pre-application consultation, which started on Monday, June 18 and will end on July 30, so that the public have the chance to provide their views on the proposals before they are finalised.

The Energy Park would integrate a range of technologies including waste energy recovery, anaerobic digestion (for local food and green waste), solar panels and battery storage.

If granted consent, Riverside Energy Park would enable Cory to convert even more of London’s residual (non-recyclable) “black bin” waste into low carbon renewable energy, particularly during times of peak usage.

It would also provide the opportunity for heat to be exported to nearby homes and businesses and continue to convert the residual ash that is left over at the end of the process into construction materials useful for building London’s homes and roads.

Visitors don’t need an appointment and can just drop in.

Nicholas Pollard, chief executive of Cory Riverside Energy, said: “We’d like to thank everybody who took the time to come along to the public exhibitions we held in May this year and all those who gave us their views on our proposals.

“We’ve now completed a number of technical studies that look in more detail at the project and explain what our approach will be to a number of key areas.

“This includes our protection of local air quality, transport management and other environmental information.”

The consultations will take place in the following locations:

Friday July 6

Belvedere Community Centre, Mitchell Close, Belvedere, 9am to 1pm

Friday July 6

Slade Green and Howbury Community Centre, Chrome Road, Erith, 4pm to 8pm
