An agricultural business which lost government backing to process food waste is being allowed to redevelop its facility to create storage space for grain.

Members of East Lothian Council’s planning committee agreed to support the Ruchlaw Produce Company’s proposals to change the use of a technical building at Ruchlaw Mains, Stenton.

In 2011, the agricultural firm was given planning permission to build an anaerobic digester to process pig slurry from the farm and other organic products to generate renewable electricity and create organic fertiliser.
