Capping of Kilgarth Landfill Site

There is a landfill site owned by Glasgow City Council which is located nearby Coatbridge. It has not be in the use for the last 10 years and a contract has been agreed for the capping of the site.

The existence of this landfill site was flagged up to myself several years ago. I have taken on board the concerns of local residents who live nearby, and asked questions about the site. Thanks to assistance from council officials, I have been able to visit and gain a detailed insight in to its history.

On Friday, I saw significant progress being made by contractors to complete the capping. In the months ahead, I will make further enquiries about tree-planting and assist in the ongoing monitoring of activities at the site.

Update on 17th June 2012:
The report with the CQA Validation Statement on the capping was finalised in April 2012.  I have viewed the report in the council offices. Trees can puncture the seal and only landscaping with grass is provided.
