Anger is mounting in Bressingham as residents continue to lodge their objections to a biogas plant in the village.

Villagers are almost unanimously in opposition to the completion of Deal Farm Biogas – an anaerobic digestion plant in Kenninghall Road which specialises in processing waste and turning it into fertiliser.

By Monday, 180 people had taken to South Norfolk Council’s planning portal to lodge their objections to the plant in the public comments section, arguing that the development is at odds with the planning approval granted to energy firm Biowatt back in 2015.

Christine Murton, who is behind a campaign to stop the plant from going ahead, said that residents are beginning to feel hopeful that they can make a difference.

She said: “We believe we are heading toward 200 objections. We hope, and are beginning to believe, that the council is listening.”

Since Monday, however, the application has received a flurry of backers, with 19 people from places such as London, Milton Keynes and Devon saying they support the plans – including Biowatt’s chief technology officer Georgi Zlatev.
