ENVIRONMENT Agency Wales is seeking comments on Shanks' application for an environmental permit to operate an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant in Pontypool. The agency will hold a session to explain the application process, what an environmental permit covers and what issues can be considered during the process.
A session will be held on Tuesday, September 11, at Panteg House in Griffithstown, from 2pm to 7pm. The session will give people a chance to ensure their comments are heard. The consultation will close on Friday, October 12, and the agency will only grant a permit if it is satisfied the facility will not harm the health of residents or damage the environment.
It will carry out an in-depth investigation to assess if there would be any risk. Key agencies such as Torfaen council, Aneurin Bevan Health Board, Food Stan-dards Agency, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service and other consultees will be asked for comments and to provide information.
