Dandara has applied for planning permission to build a new tip site which will be used by the eastern district local authorities.
The application would see a new amenity site on land at Middle Park, Braddan, as the local authorities seek to move away from the Middle River Industrial Estate site.
The application site forms part of a group of existing industrial and waste uses located to the south of Richmond Hill. This group includes the Energy From Waste Plant,, a Hazardous Waste Treatment Facility, the Animal Waste Processing Plant, two phases of small industrial units, and recycling and storage facilities for construction waste and materials.
If approved the replacement will be built by Dandara and is believed to cost the local (Braddan, Douglas, Garff, Onchan, Santon) authorities a total of about £3 million.
