View of haulage road and part of the landfill 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.
View of the landfill site which is currently being capped.
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.
