Local MP Lesley Laird, met this week with the new Ministry of Defence Minister Anne-Marie Trevelyan who is now responsible for the project to clean up the long standing issue of radiation on the beach at Dalgety Bay.
Lesley said, “The meeting was a positive one and I am now feeling more confident that this work will begin next spring. The budget is approved, the tender process is complete, and the contract will now be allocated in the next few weeks. Final agreements re access are also almost concluded and the Minister confirmed that she expects to be able to confirm the start date for the project shortly.
“This is a long time coming for the people of Dalgety Bay. I started working on this campaign with the Community Council when I was first elected as a Councillor in 2012, and here we are now in 2019 as MP and I am very pleased that I have been able to stick with this project and I look forward to seeing it brought to a satisfactory conclusion with the confirmation of the contract and the start date for work.”
“This project has been all about perseverance and I am delighted that by working together we are finally going to get the right result for the people of Dalgety Bay.”
