Bulawayo Council rejects Chinese grinding plant proposal over environmental concerns

Zimbabwe: Bulawayo City Council has turned down Labenmon Investments’ application to establish a cement grinding plant in Cowdray Park, citing ‘significant’ environmental risks. The plant had an expected output of 900,000t/yr. The council stated the proposed site’s proximity to residential areas posed potential pollution hazards, leading to the suggestion of relocation to Umguza District. Concerns were also raised regarding the choice of a foreign company over local alternatives like PPC Cement.
