Anglesey Waste Permit Refused

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has refused a company’s application for an environmental permit to carry out a waste operation in Anglesey.

Eaden Homes Limited required the permit to use waste in construction at Morfa, Trearddur Bay.

This included using 20,000m3 of waste to raise the land in preparation for building a housing development.

NRW has refused the permit because the company’s waste recovery plan is inadequate and fails to meet the legal requirements.

As the proposed site is within flood zones, NRW was also concerned that the application failed to demonstrate that raising the land would not increase flood risk to the surrounding area.

David Powell, Operations Manager for Natural Resources Wales said: “We only issue environmental permits for the permanent deposit of waste when a company’s waste recovery plan meets the legal test required.

“We will only issue a permit if we are confident that the activity will not result in any environmental problems.

 “Having assessed this proposal thoroughly, we do not believe the activity could be carried out in this location without harming the environment.”
