    BECG acts on behalf of Viridor to run public consultation activities.

We undertook a two-stage consultation programme, hosting two virtual exhibitions, on this website, to provide interested parties with detailed information about the proposals and to enable them to record their comments via the online feedback form (found above and on the virtual exhibition).

To announce the first virtual exhibition, a newsletter providing details of the proposal and the consultation programme was issued to the closest 3,800 addresses to the site. This scope was widened to publicise the second virtual exhibition, with a newsletter issued to over 5,300 closest addresses to the site. You can download a copy of both newsletters by clicking the links below.
