Project Integra is a unique partnership between Hampshire County Council, the two Unitary Authorities of Southampton and Portsmouth, the 11 District Councils, and Veolia Environmental Services to deliver an integrated waste management strategy for the county’s 1.7 million inhabitants.
The contract involved numerous major developments in infrastructure with over 290m euros invested by Veolia Environmental Services which appointed Terence O’Rourke to provide planning and environmental services for three major Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs).
The new ERFs at Portsmouth, Southampton (Marchwood) and Basingstoke (Chineham) have waste treatment capacities of between 90,000 and 165,000 tpa.
Portsmouth ERF is adjacent to an existing materials recovery facility and generates enough electricity for 20,600 homes. The Marchwood facility with its domed design has become a local landmark and supplies 22,600 homes. The Chineham facility is small and compact, but still capable of supplying enough energy to the National Grid for some 10,000 homes.
The practice provided advice on planning and environmental matters, prepared supporting planning documentation and participated in public consultation. Planning consents were secured for Chineham and Marchwood, without public enquiry. The Portsmouth facility was granted planning permission following the presentation of a robust and compelling case at a public enquiry.
