Plans for a biogas power plant on the edge of Attleborough are being tipped for approval next week after overcoming odour concerns.

A scheme for an anaerobic digestion unit was deferred by Breckland Councillors last month because of fears about the noise and smell from the plant at Crows Hall Farm.

But the renewable energy project, which would produce enough power for 1,500 homes from waste crops and manure, is being recommended for the go-ahead on Monday .

It comes after the applicant provided more information about its odour management plan and details of heavy goods vehicle movements from the poultry farm off the B1077.

The project has received several letters of objection from local residents, but has not been opposed by Attleborough Town Council.

If approved, the scheme would still require a permit from the Environment Agency.
