Deadline nears for asphalt comment

PEOPLE have until tomorrow (Wednesday) to comment on an environmental permit application for the proposed asphalt plant at Medina Wharf.

Eurovia, which wants to build the controversial plant on the banks of the River Medina, at Cowes, has applied to the Isle of Wight Council for a permit to operate the hot asphalt production process.

The Wight Residents against Asphalt Plant (WRAP) has objected to the application on the grounds of the health, noise and dust impact on residents.

Meanwhile, the company is asking for the facility’s cold asphalt recycling mixing plant to be permitted under a mobile permit granted by another local authority. WRAP is objecting on the basis mobile permits do not take into account local issues.

Group spokeswoman Julia Hill said: "According to the regulations, if a mobile plant is used as a static plant, like in this case, then it should be subject to the same rules as a static plant."
