We believe in biomass. Using biomass for heating and electricity generation results in a low net ‘lifecycle’ of carbon emissions relative to conventional sources of heating like gas, oil or electricity.
Serco Leisure Ltd, Lilleshall
Serco Leisure manage Sport England's historic site at Lilleshall, the home of British gymnastics, archery and hockey. The site is centred around a grade 2 listed hunting lodge with many ancillary and surrounding buildings having been developed over the past 50 years. The main heating supply to the site was provided by three large boilers burning 600,000 litres of heavy oil each year. Syzygy has managed the project through to a successful planning consent being achieved for a 995kW wood burning biomass boiler whilst ensuring the development was sympathetic to the historic qualities of the site and surrounding grounds.
We successfully secured delegated consent with no pre-commencement conditions by leading the project from undertaking pre-application advice to preparation of the planning application and supporting documentation to a comprehensive consultation and negotiation with Local Planning Authority officers and Councillors.
