Rockmount silt store: Bid put forward to make site permanent

Posted on June 29, 2022

Revised plans have been put forward to convert a temporary silt store in the west of the Isle of Man into a permanent facility.

The site at Rockmount is adjacent to a government-owned quarry on Poortown Road in German.

It was created by the Department of Infrastructure (DOI) in 2015 to store material dredged from Peel Harbour.

further 37,000 tonnes of waste, which is contaminated with lead and cadmium, will not be stored at the site.

First submitted in July 2020, the plans have been revised after advice from the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture.
