FT prepared a planning application including; environmental report, air emissions licence application and traffic impact assessment, for submission to the planning authority.  The contents of these applications were scoped by FT.

A site specific air prediction model was conducted using Breeze Aermod for three possible fuel types: Mineral Gas Oil, 11LS and Light Fuel Oil, with outputs from the model compared against limits set in the EU Ambient Air Quality Directive (EU 2008/50/EC).

At the request of the planning authority, a preliminary traffic impact assessment was prepared for the access junction to the site using the modelling software PICADY.  This determined the existing traffic conditions on the access road, predicted traffic generation figures for the proposed plant and assessed the impact on the receiving road network.

Planning permission and an air emission licence was granted by the planning authority.
