WEST BROMWICH ENERGY
FROM WASTE
Stephenson Halliday coordinated an
Environmental Impact Assessment, prepared
all planning work and undertook a programme
of community consultation for the proposed
Kelvin Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), West
Bromwich.
The ERF would divert up to 395,000 tonnes of waste
from landfill or export each year, with the ability to
generate up to 35MW of electricity and power up to
70,000 homes.
Stephenson Halliday coordinated the EIA team
and worked closely with the client to develop a
high quality design based on on-site constraints,
operational requirements as well as the design
requirements of the Council.
Design was one of the key considerations for the
LPA during the pre-application stages due to:
• The identified constraints,
• The location of the Application Site and
• The scale of the Proposal

Effective engagement was fundamental to
developing the design, through consultation with
the LPA’s Planning Officers, Urban Design Officers
and Environmental Health Officers, and the local
community through the community engagement
process.
The Urban Design Officer commented that “it is considered that although the scale and massing of this
development will have a significant impact on the surrounding area, the proposal would represent a
benchmark for quality for this type of use in the Borough. The general shape of the building with careful
arrangement of materials will present a striking building as you move through the elevated section of
the motorway…”
