Future of Westbury works to be revealed

Future of Westbury works to be revealed
14 June 2010

The future of Lafarge’s Westbury works, UK, will be discussed at this week’s area board meeting, when representatives of cement firm Lafarge make a presentation to the public.
The Westbury works, which was opened by Blue Circle in September 1962, was mothballed in April last year due to the recession and rising costs.

A 17-man team have remained at the plant, in the shadow of the White Horse, to deal with cement coming in by railway and out by lorries, as well as a land and planning team.
Lafarge national planning manager, John Hernon, will be at Westbury Area Board on Thursday.
Lafarge spokesman Simon Carter said: “John will be giving an update on the future of the site which was mothballed last year. There are no further details at this stage –- these will be revealed at the meeting.”
