Project Update Bulletin 7

The project update bulletin provides the latest progress on the construction of Gloucestershire’s Energy from Waste facility.

We have planned a further phase of foundation piling as part of the construction works, which will be commencing this week and continuing, intermittently until mid-June 2-17. This work will mainly be focussed on the bunker area of the site.

We have undertaken consultations with the Waste Planning Authority, Gloucestershire County Council and Stroud District Council’s Environmental Protection Manager, and we have now been given approval to extend the construction working hours at the site for a range of construction activities. Under the approved scheme (framework), which was submitted in accordance with Condition 12 of the planning permission, construction activities such as concrete pouring and finishing, steelwork installation, shuttering and formwork, excavation, piling crane work and slip forming, may be carried out during extended hours subject to due notice being given, and under a regime of strict monitoring, particularly in respect of noise.

The local Community Liaison Group for the project has been advised of these proposals which will be reviewed at the next meeting in mid-May.

The Gloucestershire Energy from Waste facility is part of Gloucestershire Council’s wider waste and resources management strategy to reduce, recycle and recover waste materials across the county and to move away from reliance on end-of-life landfill.
