Please note: The Consultation Period for Clarion Close, Swansea closed on 20 July 2018. This page is for information only.
WYG have been retained by Biffa Waste Services Ltd to submit a Planning Application for a small-scale resource recovery facility on land at Swansea Depot, Clarion Close, Morriston, Swansea within the administrative boundary of the City and County of Swansea.
The applicant operates an existing waste management and transport depot at Clarion Close, Swansea. The depot is located within the Clarion Close industrial estate circa 5kms to the north-east of Swansea City Centre. It comprises of site offices, a maintenance building, a large unused storage building and an on-site parking for the company’s fleet of waste collection vehicles. The storage building is not used as part of the depot operations and thus currently surplus to requirements.
The existing depot is Biffa’s ‘hub’ for waste collection services for Swansea and the surrounding area employing circa 40 members of staff and with a fleet of approximately 15 vehicles. The existing operations comprises the collection and transfer of trade waste from existing commercial customers in the Swansea area. This waste is then bulked up at the local Swansea Council depot (Ferryboat Close, Swansea Enterprise Park) and transported to Trecatti Landfill at Merthyr Tydfil.
The application seeks the development of a small-scale energy recovery facility, located within the surplus storage building, to complement the existing operations at the depot by treating the collected trade waste, currently transferred to landfill, in a more sustainable and beneficial manner.
The proposed development will contribute to retaining the existing workforce on the Site and provide enhanced economic and environmental benefits, in terms of new, direct and indirect employment opportunities, investment in local resource management facilities in Swansea and the provision of 0.4 megawatts of renewable energy.
