Energy From Waste Facility

The Gloucestershire Energy from Waste Facility has now become fully operational, accepting up to 190,000 tonnes of residual waste each year from Gloucestershire’s homes and Household  Recycling Centres (HRCs) and producing over 116,000 megawatts hour of electricity per annum which is exported to the National Grid.

Community Liaison Group (CLG)

The Community Liaison Group (CLG) comprises members of local Parish Councils and District and County councillors. Residents can make representations through their local representatives - for Hunts Grove, Cllr Martyn Holmes is the Parish representative.

The Gloucestershire Energy from Waste Facility Community Fund is open for applications during spring each year to established community groups in the parishes of Hunts Grove, Hardwicke, Quedgeley, Brookthorpe-with-Whaddon, Haresfield, Harescombe, Standish, Moreton Valence, and Whitminster. The Fund is managed and run by community representatives from the CLG, to support local groups and organisations who are running projects that benefit environmental,  societal, and community causes.
