Clwyd West Welsh Conservative candidate in this week’s Senedd elections, Darren Millar, has welcomed improvements to the air quality on the Glasdir Estate in Ruthin.
For months residents and businesses in the area were affected by smoke coming from Brickfield Lane.
Darren met with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and Denbighshire County Council to discuss the problem, and also visited Blazers Fuels/Newbridge Energy and Clifford Jones Timber last month with Ruthin Cllr Huw Hilditch-Roberts and Elena Vardoulaki of the Glasdir Residents’ Association to relay resident’s concerns.
He is therefore delighted that there have been significant improvements in air quality on the Glasdir Estate since his visit a few weeks ago.
“The thick smoke blighting the Glasdir Estate for months was totally unacceptable and could have been a real health risk.
“I am therefore pleased that things have really improved in recent weeks and that there is good dialogue between local businesses and the Glasdir Residents' Association regarding planned maintenance and improved procedures to keep incidents to a minimum.
"Let's hope this issue has now been resolved once and for all."
