How will the chimney stack look?

The design approach we’ve taken for the chimney stack will help to limit its visual impact.

This is in response to a key theme in the feedback we received from the local community during our consultation with the local community, and we have worked hard to reflect this in the final designs.

As a waste authority, it is our duty to ensure that we are doing everything possible to protect the health of our residents which is why the height of the chimney stack at the new facility will be as the current one. The emissions will be dispersed at height which means they will dilute before they disperse which will reduce their concentration at ground level. For the large majority of the year, the contribution is effectively zero and the predicted emission concentrations are well below the limits of detection.

An indicative image of how the chimney will look can be found in the gallery.
