A MASSIVE new composting plant is set to be built on Green Belt land in South Mimms - unless the Government steps in.
Despite more than 25 objections from homeowners, local authorities and other organisations, Hertfordshire County Council has granted planning permission for the facility at
Redwell Wood Farm, in Blackhorse Lane.
The plant, when constructed, will be able to process up to 48,500 tonnes of organic waste annually over a period of 25 years, and is expected to see some 84 heavy lorry movements each day.

In giving waste management company Agrivert planning consent, the council's development control committee noted that the development "would cause harm to the Green Belt," but decided the facility was needed to provide "more sustainable waste management in Hertfordshire".
