Planning permission was granted subject to conditions in February 2020, following the Public Inquiry but an environmental permit is also required, which the Environment Agency is responsible for granting or refusing. 
The design needs to meet the high standards and risk assessments for this type of operation. All the relevant documents will be available to view, they will consult widely with people and relevant organisations, who will be able to submit comments. 
The Environment Agency can only take account of comments relevant to the environmental regulatory requirements, including technical standards, noise and odour from the site and whether the potential impact is acceptable. 
They cannot take account of anything outside of the remit of environmental permitting, for example, the proposed location, visual impact, traffic travelling to and from the site or whether the activity should be allowed or not.



Britaniacrest Recycling Ltd lodged a planning appeal against refusal of planning permission by West Sussex County Council. Ni4H’s Interested Party Statement was submitted to the Planning Inspector on 4th March 2019.

Our focus now is raising funds for technical expert reports and a barrister, to enable Ni4H to be a Rule 6 Party at the Public Inquiry.

Ni4H respectfully requests that the Inspector dismisses the Appeal.

Fundraising for Expert Reports and a Barrister

We have a great team researching and helping prepare documents, now we urgently need to raise money to pay for a barrister and technical expert reports. 


Evidence files at the Keypoint Incinerator Public Inquiry, Members of Ni4H attended several days of the Inquiry in Swindon.

With Rule 6 status No Incinerator 4 Horsham would be considered to be a main party, sent copies of the documents sent to the Inspector by the appellant (Britaniacrest), West Sussex County Council and any other Rule 6 parties. Our barrister and technical experts would appear at the inquiry and cross-examine other parties.
