Turkish glassmaker Ciner Glass has submitted its planning application for a container glass plant in the UK.

Following a pre-application consultation during the summer, a full planning application was registered with Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council (BGCBC) in Wales by Ciner Glass UK.

It had previously said that the proposed development will include two furnaces and warehousing facilities at the Rassau Industrial Estate, in Ebbw Vale, Wales.

The manufacturing facility will utilise recycled glass within the nearby Rassau Industrial Estate.

BGCBC will now have eight weeks to consider the application, with a decision expected by January 2022.
