Statement: Withyhedge Landfill

Datganiad: Safle Tirlenwi Withyhedge

Pembrokeshire County Council Leader Cllr David Simpson has today welcomed news that Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is taking further enforcement action at Withyhedge Landfill.

NRW has issued site operators Resources Management UK Ltd (RML) with a further Regulation 36 Enforcement Notice which requires the operator to deliver a series of actions by specified deadlines to address ongoing smells from the landfill.

You can read more about the Enforcement Notice on the NRW website.

Cllr Simpson said: “The smell from Withyhedge is having a major impact on residents and visitors. This situation has gone on too long and it is unacceptable.

“We now need to see RML act on the demands of the Notice and within the deadlines.

“The Council fully backs NRW's stance that nothing is off the table in terms of further enforcement, including suspending the site’s environmental permit if appropriate, and we remain committed to working with NRW to ensure a long term solution to these issues.”
