We are just 60 metres from the lower zone of this project and as residents as well as guest house owners our concerns include:
Noise and pollution levels of construction traffic passing our property at all hours of the day. They will be working from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 12 noon on Saturdays which will have adverse affects on our business.
Noise, pollution (including dust) and vibration levels of the construction process which will involve drilling and blasting.
Presence of a large volume of water held behind a 15 metre high dam just 60 metres from our boundary and above our property.
The effects of blasting and drilling on the land surrounding the site and on our and our neighbours properties - vibration damage, land slides etc
Presence of large volumes of water in an earthquake zone - there was an earthquake here just this year, albeit a small one!
Water seepage and a change in the water table.
Flooding caused by run off from the Tarmac areas of the site as we have already suffered from this.
Taking water from Llyn Padarn and more particularly, discharging water to the lake from the quarries as they have been used as ammunition dumps in the past and contain pollutants that will be of great harm to the flora and fauna of the lake as well as to those who use the lake for swimming, kayaking etc.
