Where will the facility go?

We are in the process of siting the OPF. In March 2015, County Council approved the siting process and evaluation criteria. Over 500 candidate sites were evaluated, resulting in a short list of seven sites. 

Five of the sites for the OPF are within the search area for the Materials Management Facility (MMF) and are consequently short-listed for this facility also. On August 25, 2015, County Council approved a recommendation to move forward with the siting process and to include consideration to co-locate both facilities on one site. The short list of sites will now undergo further evaluation and a period of public and stakeholder consultation.

The preferred site will be presented to County Council in early 2016.
