Horrible smells, extra traffic and a poor location are among the reasons two parish councils are objecting to a proposed anaerobic digestion plant, Cheddar Valley Gazette has reported.
Residents of Mark in Somerset have voiced their concerns after Rolserv put in an application to build the plant on farmland near Harp Lane and Vole Road.
The plant would allow natural waste, including food and animal waste, to be converted into energy.
Residents have sent 30 letters to Sedgemoor District Council objecting to the plant.
Chairman of the district council development committee Bob Filmer has voiced his disapproval of the plant, saying it would affect houses nearby and the local tourist trade.
Mark Parish Council and Brent Knoll Parish Council have both objected, citing an unsuitable location, flooding fears and odour and noise pollution as their main concerns.
The district council, which is a consultee in the process, has also objected to the scheme.
The decision now lies with Somerset County Council.
