Public exhibition of Cory site to smooth planning process

Cory Environmental will run an exhibition of its planned Resource Recovery Park in Gloucestershire as the climax of a thorough public consultation.

Responses to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister's consultation on planning for sustainable waste management recently showed that the main stumbling block to the development of UK facilities has been public objections at the planning stage.

Cory has submitted an application to develop a Resource Recovery Park in Gloucestershire as part of its tender submission to run the county's waste management for 25 years from April 1 2006.

According to Cory planning manager Chris Farmer, "you can never do enough consultation," and the company will run an exhibition open to members of the public in June, with consultants and Cory staff on hand to answer questions.

This will be in addition to continual communication with community groups.

Farmer said: "Community consultation has, and will continue to be, a key part of securing support for our development proposals.
This exhibition will be supported by advertising in the local press to get a good turnout."

He added that the company were also considering a targeted leaflet drop to make members of the public aware of the exhibition and Cory's plans.

The plans include a Mechanical Biological Treatment facility and an anaerobic digestion plant on Cory's Wingmoor site, which is already home to a landfill site, a composting facility and a household recycling centre.

Cory Environmental, along with Shanks is down to the final two in its bid to run Gloucestershire's waste management and is awaiting the county council's decision on its preferred bidder.
