The Becon Consortium, the organisation behind plans to develop new residual waste management infrastructure to help all 11 Councils within the arc21 area meet their EU landfill diversion targets and manage waste in a more sustainable way, has confirmed details for the next series of community drop in information events to be held in the local area.

The events which have been agreed in consultation with various community groups in the local Mallusk/Newtownabbey area are as follows:


Friday 26th April 11am-8pm Corrs Corner Hotel, Ballyclare Road, Newtownabbey
Saturday 27th April 10am-4pm Corrs Corner Hotel, Ballyclare Road, Newtownabbey
Friday 10th May  4pm-8pm  

Academy Sports Club, Hydepark Road, Mallusk


Saturday 11th May 10am-4pm  

Academy Sports Club, Hydepark Road, Mallusk


Prior to the submission of a formal planning application in the autumn the Becon Consortium, backed by leading European energy company E.ON Energy from Waste, is undertaking a programme of extensive public consultation and  these events are a key part of the programme. This is designed to explain the proposals in detail, answer questions and provide the public and other stakeholders with an opportunity to share their feedback.

To support the consultation programme, a project website has also been launched –  WWW.BECON.CO.UK where people can also use to provide feedback and ask questions.
