I understand the GLA is represented on the Combined Heat Power (CHP) working group which is in place to help deliver hot water and heating from the Beddington energy from waste incinerator via a heat network to new homes on the Felnex site in Hackbridge. What progress has been made with the developer Barratt Homes which is due to build 700 homes on this site?

The Beddington Energy Recovery Facility CHP working group will have its inaugural meeting at the beginning of February 2016. The GLA is a member of the group. There is a high level commitment from Barratt to connect to the district heating network and the London Borough of Sutton have commenced detailed discussions, which to date have been very positive.
