Firm seeks earlier start

A WASTE processing plant’s application to extend its working hours has been recommended for approval by town councillors.

TEG Environmental Ltd is seeking to begin loading and unloading silo cages at Sharneyford Works, Bacup Road, from 5am, two hours earlier than it currently has permission to do.

Councillors felt the number of vehicles entering and exiting the site would not create traffic problems at that time of day.
