Public meeting to be held to address Fremington Army Camp contamination concerns

Posted on: 14 June 2016

A meeting has been arranged to address concerns that have been raised about contamination issues at the former Fremington Army Camp.

The public meeting has been organised by North Devon Council for Wednesday 22 June at Fremington Church Hall.

Executive member for Environment, Councillor Rodney Cann, said: “There has been concern from some local people with regard to potential asbestos risks, both on the site itself and through lorries coming and going. As a result, and following a request for a public meeting, the council has arranged to hold this community event, so that these concerns can be addressed and so the public can find out what action or measures have been put in place.”

Local ward member, Councillor Frank Biederman, said: “I am pleased the council has been able to arrange this meeting and urge those that have raised concerns to attend the meeting, so we can hear from the officers dealing with the site what has and has not happened. There have been so many rumours going around, we really need to be assured the public are not being put at risk in any way and all procedures are in place to ensure this.”

The public meeting will start at 6.30pm and will finish no later than 8pm.
