JS78328791JPG

My latest press release  on the Biomass Plant is below 

‘As a result of my interventions and oral question to the Environment Minister on 14th February in the Senedd, I welcome this initiative and I am pleased that Welsh Ministers are considering an Environmental Impact Assessment on the Biomass Plant on Barry Docks.

 I have made repeated calls for an EIA and I consider this to be of absolute importance, despite the granting on 7th February of an Environmental Permit by Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

I am convinced that there are outstanding technical issues which are still to be addressed.  These are: –

(i)       Air Quality Assessment

(ii)      Noise Assessment

(iii)     Fuel Safety

(iv)     Fire Safety

(v)      Consultation process

(vi)     Failure to disclose information

I think that a direction under the EIA Regulations is crucial and I look forward to the Company’s response to the rigorous questions put to them by the Welsh Government.’
