Formal consultation ahead on Scawby power station plans for 550 jobs
Centrica Energy is powering ahead with plans for a major development at Scawby Brook, which is earmarked to provide 50 permanent jobs and employment for a further 500 during construction.
It wants to build and operate a new biomass-fuelled electricity generating power station on part of the old Brigg sugar factory site.
The firm held an initial consultation exercise in the spring to gauge reaction from North Lincolnshire people.
That seems to have been positive, and now Centrica has announced a formal consultation process, beginning on September 21.

Public exhibitions will be held at Ancholme Leisure Centre, Scawby Brook, on Friday, October 5, from 3pm to 9pm, and at the Angel Suite in Brigg town centre on Saturday, October 6, from 10am to 4pm.
Rail is the chosen method for bringing biomass wood pellets from abroad into the plant - probably shipped in through the port of Immingham.
A "key component" of the proposal is a new rail reception facility with biomass unloading facilities.
The site earmarked for the Centrica Glanford Brigg Biomass Power Station is close to the New River Ancholme.
