Local residents are being encouraged to attend one of two community engagement events to hear details of new revised plans for an Energy from Waste (EfW) plant at Binn EcoPark near Glenfarg.
Owners Binn Group – one of Scotland’s leading independent waste management providers – are seeking permission to expand the plant capacity and modify the building design of their previously consented plans.
Although the Schedule 2 application lodged with Perth and Kinross Council requires no official public consultation process, Binn Group are committed to hosting community engagement events to inform people of their evolving proposals.
Two engagement events will be held at Dunbarney Church, Manse Road, Bridge of Earn, PH2 9DY on Thursday 30th January, the first at 2pm – 4pm and the second at 6.30pm – 8:30pm.
At each event the independent chairman John Summers OBE, Chair of Beautiful Perth, will welcome members of the public before plans for the next generation complex are presented by planning and environmental experts.
Questions will then be invited from the floor with the expert panel on hand to respond to any issues raised.
Representatives from the four local Community Councils – Earn; Glenfarg; Auchtermuchty and Strathmiglo; and Abernethy and District – have already attended a site visit to the Binn EcoPark earlier this week and will also be in attendance at these events.
