Demolition company recycling site gets go-ahead


A recycling plant to be built by demolition firm G O’Brien and Sons has been given the green light by a Government inspector.

The company had planned to build a facility to deal with demolition materials, cardboard, and food and drink cans on the Cleadon Lane Industrial Estate in East Boldon, South Tyneside.


But last year, South Tyneside Council rejected the planning application for the facility. However, G O’Brien and Sons appealed to a Government inspector.

The company has now won its appeal with the inspector saying that the facility “would have no adverse effect on the living conditions of nearby residents”.

It is anticipated that the facility will handle 24,000 tonnes of waste per year.
