Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have reviewed an application from the Greek Cypriot authorities to construct a solid waste management plant at Ormidhia within the Sovereign Base Area (SBA); in what way the SBA will consult local residents; and whether the decision to agree such a request will be made by the SBA authorities or by Her Majesty's Government. [HL5789]

The Sovereign Base Areas (SBA) Administration has received a request from the Republic of Cyprus Government to build a waste management transfer station in Ormidhia. This request is supported by the elected community council of Ormidhia. The project is now being subjected to planning approval processes, which include formal consultation with local residents. The decision on whether to agree this request will be taken by the administrator of the SBA once the process has been completed.
