Eurovia Roadstone, the company planning to build an asphalt plant in Cowes, will face a grilling from the public tonight (Tuesday).
Islanders will be able to ask questions about the proposals at a public forum at East Cowes Town Hall, which gets underway at 6:30pm.
Eurovia Director, Pat Riley, will speak at the meeting, and says he wants to 'mitigate the concerns' of Island people.
Campaign group Wight Residents against Asphalt Plant (WRAP) has raised concerns about the location of the plant, saying it is too close to populated areas.
In response, Mr Riley says he believes the site is suitable.
'In most of the south of England, asphalt plants do tend to be in urban areas, either on wharfs or on railheads', he told us.
Pat Riley spoke to Isle of Wight Radio's Chris Browning ahead of Tuesday night's the public meeting. Click above to listen to the full interview.
