Question ref. S6W-02754
Asked by: Sharon Dowey, South Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 8 September 2021
To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the situation at Tarbolton Moss Landfill Site, and what plans it has to clean up the site.
Current status: Answered by Mairi McAllan on 28 September 2021
Although not responsible for the site, the Scottish Government has agreed to fund the first phase of work at the Tarbolton landfill site, which will begin to reduce the environmental and amenity impact of the site. As part of this first phase, work to remove giant hogweed from the site was successfully completed in July.
SEPA is currently procuring the bulk of the first phase of work and I am grateful to SEPA for offering to undertake this procurement.
While the Scottish Government is not responsible for the site, we continue to work with our public partners to consider further actions for its longer-term restoration.
