THE problem of radiation in Dalgety Bay could soon be over after a planning application was passed to begin the clean-up. Project plans to reduce and control the health and environmental risks of contamination have been passed by the West Planning Committee. The Press told you in April this year that plans had been submitted to carry out work on the foreshore, which includes installing a geotextile membrane and replacing and reinforcing rock armour to isolate and remove higher activity material. The existing jetty and slipways at Dalgety Bay Sailing Club are also set to be replaced. Work will be carried out over two consecutive six-month summer periods – approximately April to September – due to the risk of impacting wintering birds in the Bay area.
