The North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project (NWRWTP), a partnership of Flintshire County Council, the Isle of Anglesey County Council, Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council and Gwynedd Council, have announced the deadline for the public to respond to the consultation exercise that is currently on going.
The Partnership have announced that responses should be received by 5pm on Friday, 23 September 2011. The consultation process started in June 2011 with sessions held with Councillors from of all five partner authorities.
A series of drop in sessions have already been held in Anglesey and Flintshire, with further sessions organised for later during August for Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd. The Partnership is also announcing an additional drop in session in Flintshire (details below).
Councillor Eryl Williams, Chair of the NWRWTP's Joint Committee, said: “We are pleased with how the "drop in" sessions have gone so far. Although the project is still at a very early stage, it’s good to see that residents are showing an interest and looking to get involved.”
Lead Chief Executive for the project and Flintshire County Council, Colin Everett, said: “I would like to urge residents of North Wales to take part in the consultation process, and to also come along to one of the remaining drop in sessions.”
The venues and dates for the remaining drop in sessions are:-
Conwy Business Centre, Junction Way, Llandudno Junction, LL31 9XX - Tuesday 30th August, 2pm-7pm

Residents can also find out more and complete a consultation questionnaire on the project’s website, www.nwrwtp.org.
The next step in the procurement process is for bidders to submit their detailed solutions, which they have to do in November this year. These will be thoroughly evaluated, before recommendations are made to the Member Committee regarding de-selection of any bidder. The remaining bidders will then submit their final tenders in Spring 2012 and the preferred bidder appointed in late 2012 / early 2013. A planning application would then follow.
