Consultations with Alkane Energy regarding licence conditions on a proposed anaerobic digester at Whitwell, Derbyshire

Duncan Kerr made this Freedom of Information request to Environment Agency

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Environment Agency,

I understand that you have had discussions with Alkane Energy regarding the licence conditions likely to be required if planning permission is granted for this anaerobic digester which will be receiving agricultural waste.

Can you please provide copies of all electronic and written correspondence regarding these discussions particularly, but not exclusively, concerning your views on their proposal to store this material in open silos rather than in an enclosed building under negative air pressure.

yours faithfully,

Enquiries, Unit, Environment Agency

Thank you for contacting the Environment Agency.

So when can I expect a response?

You can expect to receive a reply from us within 2 working days for most
general enquiries. If your enquiry is of a technical nature it could take
up to 10 working days. Please note that bank holiday days and weekends are
not classed as a working day.

If your enquiry refers to a Waste Exemption application you can expect to
receive a response within 5 working days (If you have applied for a T11
exemption you should expect to receive a response within 25 working days)

The Customer Charter (response days) for all enquiries start from the next
working day of you receiving this auto reply from us. For example the
customer charter for an e-mail received on a Friday, will start on the
following Monday (providing this isn't a bank holiday).

But my e-mail refers to an Environmental Incident, won't it get answered
sooner?

If you wish to report an incident i.e. pollution, fish in distress,
dumping of hazardous waste, etc please do not use this e-mail service

What do I need to do if I require a response to my e-mail before the end
of the ten working days and it isn't an incident?

You can contact our National Customer Contact Team on 08708 506 506,
Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm, they will be happy to assist you.

Will I be charged for e-mail information?
