"PLANNERS have dismissed proposals for a new “eco-community” in Hanley Castle, raising the prospect of the site being returned to its former use as a waste incinerator.

Peter Styles was seeking permission to create 24 homes and a hub building, set around a village green, at the disused incinerator site in Hangmans Lane.


Planning officers advised them that a housing development on a site considered open countryside was against policy.

And ward member Coun Mike Morgan said it was the right idea, but in the wrong place.

“I applaud the applicants. I think the ethos behind it is sound and that in the future we will see a lot more of these developments coming before us,” he said.

Agent Andrew Boughton told members refusal would likely result in an appeal alongside further work to re-open the site as an incinerator, albeit now one for clinical waste.

“My client did not expect to create the planning paradox presented to you tonight. He had ambitions to do something creative with this incongruous building,” he said. “In the bigger picture what actual harm could arise from a decision to support?”

The application also found support from Cllr John Raine, who said the council was still governed by “20th century policies that are giving us 20th century developments”.

“This is probably the most exciting development I have seen on this committee in the last 10 years and I for one would like to try and support it,” he said."

Worcestershire has always being a favourite county from back in the day. From a First explore of Pershore market back in 1997, high point of the site being all the old advertising billboards.To the present day and a site that I'd not visited before in the form of this incinerator.Since the earlier newspaper article appeared in the Malvern Gazette in March 2011, not much information on this incinerator.other than it appears to have become disused at the turn of the century.The site remains in limbo and continues its steady decline.
