Tetrosyl submits application for Hazardous Substances Consent for Castleton site

Date published: 20 March 2017

Tetrosyl has applied to Rochdale Borough Council for consent to store hazardous substances at their distribution centre on Royle Barn Road in Castleton.

The application, under The Planning (Hazardous Substances) Act 1990 and The Planning (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2015, was submitted on 1 March.

In August 2015, Rochdale Online reported that Tetrosyl, the largest manufacturer and supplier of car care products in Europe and the largest independent oil blender in the UK, was looking at the site as a potential location to store hazardous chemicals:

The following month, residents held a public meeting due to concerns about hazardous chemicals being stored in a residential area.

Members of the public may inspect a copy of the application at the site between the hours of 8.00 am and 16.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

Anyone who wishes to make representations about the application should write to Rochdale Borough Council, Number One Riverside, Smith Street, Rochdale OL16 1XU by 22 March.
