A bid to transform the site of a 12-week blaze into a biomass development to generate electricity fuelled by wood chips has been backed by the Environment Agency (EA).

A permit for the Appspond Lane site – on the border of Hemel Hempstead and St Albans – has now been granted for the work to Navitas Environmental Limited.

But St Albans MP Anne Main said: “There is a long history of mismanagement at the site and the EA must reassure me and my constituents that this will never happen again.”
