Medical waste incinerator meeting to be held in St David’s

A town hall meeting is to be held in St David’s next week on the proposed installation of a medical waste incinerator, the Government has said.

The gathering on Tuesday, November 1, will be hosted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Proposals for the incinerator where given the green light by the Department of Planning last month.

The application by MediWaste proposed the erection of a new structure on industrially zoned land on Waller’s Point Road in Southside, which would process medical waste from the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital as well as medical offices, veterinarian clinics, tattoo parlours and pharmacies.

A government spokesman said: “Representatives from DENR and MediWaste will give presentations and answer questions about the project.

“This meeting is an opportunity for residents and businesses to learn about the plans, ask questions and address any concerns to ensure a complete understanding of the project.

“The general public, especially St David’s area businesses and residents, are encouraged to attend.”

The proposed facility would include a main processing building at the centre of the site and a detached site office and storage container to the west of the main building.

Conditions of the approval include that development should begin within two years and that for the sake of visual amenity any trees or shrubs shown in the plans should be replaced if they are killed or damaged.

The meeting will take place from 5.30pm to 7pm at Xtreme Sports Centre, 9 Waller’s Point Road, St David’s.
