In what they call “an effort to re-assure residents “ the Vale of Glamorgan Council is to install automated air quality monitoring sensors around the newly built Biomass incinerator at Barry Dock.
It’s been claimed by some that the effluent plume from the plant will be carried to Penarth by prevailing westerly winds
The Vale Council says its Planning Enforcement team is also continuing to monitor the works and operations being carried out at the site.
The Welsh Labour Government has said that they are “minded to direct that the planning application should be accompanied by an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)”. If that happens – and an EIA is required there would need to be a full consultation process before any recommendation is made to the Vale Council planning committee
