Redundant chlorine plant to be demolished
A FORMER Lostock chlorine plant is set to be demolished.
The dismantling and demolition of the redundant INEOS chlorine plant, workshops and out buildings - at the site off Griffiths Road - is scheduled to start any time and is expected to take around four months to complete.
Special contractors will carry out the work, which will only take place between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
No demolition work will take place during weekends or Bank Holidays unless it is required on the grounds of safety.
In a letter to the parish council, a spokesman for INEOS said: “Cheshire West and Chester Council have granted permission for this work to be carried out and we are working with all agencies to ensure that we comply fully with the necessary regulations and standards.
“It is likely that there will be some noise while this work is being carried out, particularly from machinery, but we will make every effort to keep any disturbance to a minimum and noise monitoring will be carried out.
“In addition this work will be visible offsite due to the use of cranes and other lifting equipment.”
There are currently no development plans for the site but the area will remain within INEOS’s ownership for the foreseeable future.
