Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is managing an independent consultation as it considers Wheelabrator’s application for an Environmental Permit. This is just one of the permissions that Wheelabrator will need to operate Parc Adfer. It focuses on how the energy recovery facility will operate to the highest standards and minimise its environmental impact. More information on this process – which is separate from the planning application being considered by Flintshire County Council – can be found on the NRW website.
