THE WINNER of the contest to build a factory in a town best known for its power station will be announced next month.
Bowmer & Kirkland, Clugston and GSE are chasing the £25 million deal in Ferrybridge, West Yorkshire, for construc-tion materials firm Lafarge Plasterboard.
One source said that the nearby coal-fired power station, which was first opened in 1959, could add to remediation costs.
He said: 'The main problem is the ground. It's a fill site for power station waste and it's going to be pretty expensive to prepare.'
Work on the factory is due to start in August.
