Renderer gets expansion go-ahead

A Yorkshire-based rendering company has been given permission to double lorry movements out of its plant.

Following a public inquiry, Omega Proteins of Bradford has been told by planners that it can increase lorry movements from 30 to 60 a day.

The company has also been told that it can extend the hours during the day in which lorries can enter and leave the plant. However, the company has been told that noise levels must be lowered and lorries adapted to reduce spillage.

A spokesman for the Leo Group, which owns Omega Proteins, said: “We are pleased with the announcement from the planning inspector. We will continue to work with local residents and the elected members in minimising disruption.”

A number of local residents had complained that a rise in lorry movements would cause increased pollution and traffic problems.
