Public meeting at Alcan plant

A second public meeting will be held by Rio Tinto Alcan later this morning to update the public and stakeholders after the closure of the Smelter in Lynemouth.

The local community will be given details of the latest developments on the smelter's Regional Economic Development (RED) Strategy, and ongoing legacy initiatives that have been put in place to support Lynemouth and wider South East Northumberland.

Building on the success of the public meeting we held earlier this year, we have listened to valuable feedback from our neighbours and are keen to involve key stakeholders and members of the public in our ongoing RED strategy. As part of this, we are committed to providing regular updates on future plans for the site.

– John McCabe, Regional Economic Development Director,
