Proposed Waste Management Facility at Unit C, Maerdy Industrial Estate, Rhymney

JCR Planning Ltd have been instructed by Mekatek Ltd to prepare a full planning application for the change of use of an existing industrial site with associated buildings to a new waste management facility. The site will deal with and process a range of non-organic forms of waste and break them down through a recycling process into their component materials. These will then be exported from the site to be recycled and used in the manufacture of a range of products.

As part of the preparation process of the planning application, we are now undertaking a formal pre-application consultation exercise as required  by  the Planning (Wales) Act 2015 and the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Wales) (Amendment) Order 2016 (the Order). It also follows the guidance of Appendix 1 of the letter sent by the Welsh Government to Chief Planning Officers dated 1st February 2016. This consultation process relates to a draft planning application, which consists of the documents set out below.
Commencing on the 19th December 2016 therefore, comments and responses to the draft planning application submissions are now invited from all parties by 5pm 27th January 2017. Should you therefore have any queries or questions regarding the scheme, or wish to make a formal response to the documentation, please email us at
