Plans for a new hazardous waste facility on Carlingford Lough would appear to be dead in the water after the company behind their proposal withdrew their application.

Re-Gen Waste Ltd applied in March for a Pollution Prevention Control (PPC) permit to operate an installation involving the treatment, transfer and temporary storage of hazardous waste at Warrenpoint Docks.

The proposal, which only came to light in recent weeks, was met with huge opposition by those on both sides of the border.

Now it appears as though people power has prevailed.

The Newry-based company have revealed to The Newry Reporter that they are withdrawing their application.

The front page of this week’s Newry Reporter where it was revealed plans for the hazardous waste treatment plant was being withdrawn

In a statement to the newspaper, Re-Gen Waste Ltd said they would be writing to the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) to inform them they are withdrawing the application.

Last week Warrenpoint Harbour Authority had appeared to pour cold water on the plans when it said there was no place for a toxic waste facility in its plan for the harbour.
