Controversial waste project awarded environmental permit despite council opposition

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has granted an environmental permit for a controversial waste transfer station for refuse-derived fuel (RDF) at Pembroke Dock, despite opposition from its town council.

NRW said Milford Haven Port Authority, which is leading the project, had demonstrated that it can meet all the legal, environmental and health requirements of UK, Welsh and European law to receive a permit and operate the waste site.
