Padeswood plant concerns tackled, UK

Residents living near Padeswood cement works near Buckley are being invited to drop-in sessions by the Environment Agency to find out how it monitors the site to make sure it does not harm the environment or people’s health.

These sessions will take place between 1pm and 9pm on Tuesday, September 30 and Wednesday, October 1 at Penyffordd Memorial Hall, Penyffordd, near Mold for people to discuss the works.

As regulator of Castle Cement, the Agency enforces an environmental permit which controls pollution, emissions, dust and working practices from the site to make sure the works have as little impact as possible on the local environment and community.

Ann Weedy, of Environment Agency Wales, said: "We want anyone who has concerns or questions on how we regulate Castle Cement to come along and find out more. Our officers will be available to help with any issues you may have.

"In the past, we have received a number of complaints about the impacts of the site on the surrounding area. We want to update people on the actions we have taken to deal with these issues, and are keen to hear their ideas and suggestions on how we keep the community."
