P&G is committed to keeping and creating jobs in the local area. It is therefore important to ensure they have the flexibility to allow for potential future expansion.
The proposed location of the Biomass CHP Plant is near but not next to the P&G plant and has been selected to maximize the potential for the expansion of the existing P&G London plant. The location for the proposal does not provide any barriers for the future use of the remainder of the Fiddlers Reach site. The proximity of the site to P&G’s existing plant will allow efficient management across all of its facilities.
P&G will bring forward their aspirations for the space between its existing plant and the proposed Biomass CHP Plant at the appropriate time. This will take place in open dialogue with the local community and Thurrock Council.
