Plans for asbestos disposal in Bristol is opposed by local MPs

The leader of the Bristol city council and two MPs have urged planners to listen to objections to the proposed asbestos disposal in Bristol.

Last July, an application to dispose of hazardous waste at Stowey Quarry was initially approved by Bath and North East Somerset Council. The decision was later quashed but an application has since been resubmitted by Oaktree Environmental.

Opponents fear asbestos may get into Chew Valley reservoir and the Environment Agency have said that they would be objecting to the plans.

Peterborough City Council approve asbestos disposal in local quarry

A waste disposal company has received unanimous approval from a planning committee to allow them to dump asbestos at a landfill site near the town of Peterborough.

A well-known Waste Services company had originally applied for asbestos disposal waste within four “non hazardous” cells at Eyebury Quarry and to increase the catchment area for it to accept more asbestos disposal.

Peterborough City Council’s planning committee permitted the application, which will see a maximum of 200,000 tonnes of the waste dumped at the site over the next 10 years.
