Please provide your comments on the environmental permit application received from Biomass UK No1 LLP (Required)
I refer to the recent application relating to the Biomass UK No1 LLP plant in King George Dock, Hull. I have considered the noise report and the air quality assessment submitted with the application. In relation to noise, I have noted that the predicted increase of the Rating noise level above background noise level will be +4dB. I would have expected that at night there should be no increase in background noise level. Can mitigation measures be installed in order to ensure that the rating noise level from the plant does not exceed the background noise level? In relation to air quality the air quality assessment; section 7.4 states that there is a significant impact on annual mean NO2 concentrations at residential properties on Hedon Road, north east of the site however there is no exceedance of the AQO predicted. I found these figures difficult to ascertain within the report however could the applicant provide details of the predicted NO2 levels at the residential properties? Redacted text
