Welcome to the North London Heat and Power Project

Development consent order (DCO) submission

The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has now granted a Development Consent Order (DCO) for us to build a replacement energy recovery facility, and associated development, at the Edmonton EcoPark.

We will now consider the details of the consent, and the implications of any conditions included. You can read the full statement here.

For a copy of the Development Consent Order application submission please visit our Document Library. Additional documents submitted during examination of the application, and the decision documents, can be found on the Planning Inspectorate's website.

What is the North London Heat and Power Project?

It’s about how we – North London Waste Authority - think the waste that cannot be recycled from the seven London boroughs in our area should be dealt with in the future. We want to build an Energy Recovery Facility to replace the existing plant at the Edmonton EcoPark by 2025 so we can continue to recover energy – heat and power – from waste.

Consultation phases for the project

Our two planned phases of consultation have now finished. The first took place between 28 November 2014 and 27 January 2015 and was to collect your thoughts before we shaped our plans, and the second, from 18 May to 30 June 2015, where we shared the detail.

You can read our phase one consultation feedback report that sets out the approach and findings of the phase 1 consultation. We have reviewed all the comments we received during both phases of the consultation and a summary can be found here.

We considered all the feedback we have received and took this into account before we submitted our application.
