Pepper Street: Remediation of the Waste Tip

Keele and Silverdale Parish Councils met with Professional Remediation and the Environment Agency this week with regard to the remediation of the smouldering waste tip on the land north of Pepper Street.  “Professional” are currently engaged in preparing for the remediation.

  • Erection of Heras fencing around the perimeter of the site working area;
  • Clearance of vegetation to facilitate the erection of the fence;
  • Preparation and installation of welfare facilities and storage;
  • Preparation and installation of plant refuelling and storage areas;
  • Preparation of the treatment area;
  • Preparation and installation of an access track from within the site to access the treatment area and colliery spoil fire; and
  • Baseline monitoring.

The work itself cannot commence until conditions 9 and 10 have been signed off by Newcastle but the Environment Agency look like recommending that they are approved as having been satisfied.  In addition Keele Homes will need to pay a bond of 1.2 million, not later than the point at which the work commences.

There will be a Community Meeting on Tuesday 27th November at 18:00 to 20:00 at Silverdale Athletic Football Club

Both the Environment Agency and Professional Remediation are committed to working with the community.  Should problems occur they are best reported to Professional Remediation in the first instance:
