Final chance to have your say on Deeside waste plant proposals

RESIDENTS have a last chance to air their views about a controversial project which could see a waste-burning facility built in Deeside heard.

Bosses behind the £142m North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project (NWRWTP) have announced an extra drop-in session will take place in Connah’s Quay next Thursday, September 8.

The meeting, which will be held in the Quay Building on Fron Road from 2-7pm, will be the final opportunity for residents to meet project chiefs before the end of the consultation period on September 23.

The planned waste plant – expected to be built on Deeside Industrial Park – will deal with residual rubbish, that which cannot be recycled or composted, from Flintshire, Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd.

Cllr Eryl Williams , chairman of the NWRWTP’s joint committee, said: “We are pleased with how the drop-in sessions have gone so far. Although the project is still at a very early stage, it’s good to see residents are showing an interest.”

Flintshire County Council chief executive Colin Everett added: “I would like to urge residents to take part in the consultation process.”
