Permission sought for new Bristol recycling park

A multi-million pound recycling park is on the cards for Bristol.

Regeneration company St Mowden Properties has submitted an outline planning application to Bristol City Council for industrial/distribution purposes that would enable the company to create what it call a recycling ecopark on 55 acres of land.

The site would be the former Britannia Zinc site in Avonmouth.

St Modwen senior development manager Rob Skelston said: "The intention is to develop a recycling park as part of a wider industrial scheme on this strategically located site on the M5 and M49.

Because of new directives covering the treatment of waste and recycling, we are already receiving significant interest in the park."

To be known as Bristol Recycling Park, it could offer sites for companies handling End-of-Life Vehicles, tyres, plastics, green waste, paper, card and glass.

The park would run in conjunction with a 28-acre landfill site already operating there.
Subject to planning consent, it is hoped that development of the park will begin at the end of the year.
