Water company bosses have today announced they will hold an exhibition next week to unveil plans for a West Norfolk treatment centre.

Anglian Water has not yet released details of its proposals for the site at Clockcase Lane, Clenchwarton and a planning application has yet to be submitted.

However, the company has announced it intends to hold an exhibition at the Premier Inn hotel on Clenchwarton Road, West Lynn, next Tuesday, July 14, between 4 and 6pm.

The plant already processes sludge, a by-product of the water recycling process which is brought to the site by tanker, to make a soil conditioner for farmers.

But a spokesman said: “Enhancements are needed to make better use of the available capacity on site, and enable the works to receive and process the sludge in different forms, while continuing maintaining the very high treatment standards required.”

The company has previously proposed to build a new facility at West Lynn to pump sludge to the Clenchwarton site.

However, the plans were rejected by planners following a lengthy campaign by local residents again them.

But the company maintains that the new proposal is not related to that scheme.
