Residents are invited to attend a meeting tonight (Tuesday, October 23) to hear more details about proposals for a new waste recycling plant in Corby.

Baileys Skip Hire, now based in Gretton Brooke Road, has submitted a planning application to Corby Council to build the recycling centre in Heritage Way, in the town.

The meeting has been called by GP Planning on behalf of the company after residents expressed concerns over possible noise, litter and odour problems.

It is being held at Stephenson Way Community Centre, starting at 7pm, and borough councillors Mark Pengelly, Sean Kettle and Lucy Goult will be attending.

Cllr Pengelly said: “People are worried that the recycling plant will cause problems and I am urging residents who live in the Stephenson Way area and who are concerned to go along to the meeting to hear what the company has to say.”

If the plans are approved, waste material including plastic, glass, metals, paper and card, will be taken to the site in skips and containers to be processed.
