Proposal for new Norfolk gas-fired power station

Norfolk County Council’s Policy and Resources Committee has been notified of a proposal by EP UK Power Development Ltd to build a new gas-fired power station near King’s Lynn.

The proposal has the potential to support economic growth in the county by generating up to 60 permanent jobs and a high number of construction jobs for the area, as well as advantages for the local supply chain.

If the proposal were to get the green light, EP UK Power Development would lease land from Norfolk County Council and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and the land would be removed from the local waste plan.

Cliff Jordan, leader of Norfolk County Council, said: “Discussions are only at the very early stage and are currently just exploratory. However, this proposal provides the opportunity for a substantial development that will provide high quality jobs and supply chain opportunities for King’s Lynn. Whatever happens though, I want to be clear that this land will be taken out of the waste plan.”
