7 July 2022

The first dedicated plastics recycling park in the UK has been given the go-ahead near Ellesmere Port.

The £165m site will include four recycling centres which will process 367,500 tonnes of plastic a year and a hydrogen refuelling station for HGVs, with the scheme set to create more than 250 jobs.

Cheshire West and Chester Council’s planning committee gave the green light yesterday to the proposals by Peel Natural Resources and Energy LTD for Protos Plastic Park at Ince Marshes off Grinsome Road.

The planning application said it would create 147 direct full positions and an additional 72 jobs in the area. During the construction phase it is estimated that 58 full time jobs would be created.
