Norwich waste land to be power station site with new homes

Plans have been announced to build a power station on a derelict site in Norwich.

Environment campaigners are backing the scheme for a station burning 200,000 tonnes per year of straw pellets to provide power for 88,000 homes.

The so-called "Generation Park" project in the city's Thorpe Hamlet area would also include new homes and an education centre.

The next step is to present the scheme to Norwich City Council for planning permission.
