We are consulting on our proposals for a new aggregate manufacturing and carbon capture facility at Larkshall Mill in Wretham, Norfolk.

If built, the new facility would manufacture up to 100,000 tonnes of carbon-negative aggregate for use in the construction industry every year. Due to the volume of material that would be handled by the facility, it is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP).

This is different to planning applications you may be more familiar with – under the Planning Act 2008, we must seek a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the relevant Secretary of State.

Public consultation

To help prepare our DCO application, we are consulting on our current proposals from Monday 4 July 2022 until Friday 12 August 2022.

We’ve prepared a number of documents to help you understand our proposals in more detail, available below. You can also view our full Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) here.

You can view these documents in hard copy at the following locations during their normal opening hours:

  • Thetford Library, Raymond Street, Thetford IP24 2EA
  • Attleborough Library, Church Street, Attleborough NR17 2AH
  • Wretham Village Hall, Church Road, Wretham IP24 1RL

You can also obtain a copy of the application documents on a USB memory stick by calling 0800 0194 576, emailing Larkshallmillconsultation@secnewgate.co.uk or by writing to us at Larkshall Mill consultation, FREEPOST SEC NEWGATE UK LOCAL

We are holding two public exhibition events where you can view information on the proposals, speak with the project team and leave your feedback. These events will be held at Wretham Village Hall, Church Road, Wretham IP24 1RL on the following dates:

  • Friday 8 July 2022, 3:30pm to 7:30pm
  • Saturday 9 July 2022, 10:00am to 2:00pm
