Dartford Council will discuss plans to build a 24/7 renewable energy plant at Manor Way Business Park, Swanscombe.

The development control board will meet tonight but it is likely both Dartford Council and Swanscombe Town Council will oppose the scheme.

Swanscombe council say the object because they are concerned about the environmental impact of the site and the impact of the gasses omitted.

Concerns raised by Dartford include visual impact, traffic impact, air quality and noise. The meeting takes place at 7pm at the civic chambers in Home Gardens.
