Subject: Remediation methods for old tar works site

 

Request


I am currently in my fourth year of an MEng course in Civil Engineering at the University of Newcastle.

I am undertaking a project to look at possible remediation methods available to clean up an old tar works site next to the River Tyne.

I would be grateful if you could send me any information you think may be of any assistance.

Dear Mark

The latest copy of Environment Business Magazine (Nov/Dec) has just dropped onto my mat. After disentangling it from Bur's jaws (the neighbour's Burmese cat who is very into recycling) I discovered the following on page 35.

Contract News - Regeneration
The 50 acre site of Monkton cokeworks on south Tyneside is to be reclaimed and developed by English Partnerships. Half the site will be turned into a business park, with the remainder will be incorporated into the adjoining Great Northern Forest.

The project which will cost around 6 million, should be finished by April 2000.

The principal contractor is Hall Construction at Rushley Ford

The lead engineering consultants are Bullens (0191) 384 8594

The gentleman in charge at English Partnerships is Chris Munro who can be reached at (0191) 976 7070.

Mr Wilson at Bullens told me that due to the favourable geology the site will be treated by on-site encapsulation, but if you wish to have more details he would be very happy to help.

cheers

Micky

Dear Mark

I emailed Chris Munro at English Partnerships with the following request

I run a website called http://www.contaminatedland.co.uk which deals with contaminated land issues

I recently had a request from a student at Newcastle University about remediating cokeworks.

I would be very grateful if you could give me some more information about the project, that I could post up about the project

The answer I got was :-

    Unfortunately EP has a policy not to issue info. to websites.

So I suggest that if you want information that you go down to the local planning office, as this information is in the public domain.

Once the Present Government passes some sensible legislation such as a Freedom of Information Act (instead of acting like spoilt children and indulging in Onanaism just the the House of Lords refuses to act like Turkeys and vote for Christmas!), then this information will be available to you as a right not as a privilege.

cheers

Micky
