What waste planning services can we offer?
Waste planning can often be challenging and can generate significant interest from affected communities. If you’re setting up a new waste development, or seeking to change the operations of an existing one, it helps to get advice from industry experts on how to approach the planning system. Effective management of this approach is fundamental to the success of many waste management projects.
Our comprehensive waste planning service brings together a range of disciplines to manage the difficult technical and political issues often associated with obtaining planning permission, including:
- Site and planning policy appraisals
- Technical analysis of waste planning issues
- Waste planning applications and appeals
- Waste planning evidence for public inquiries and legal cases
- Preparation of waste planning statements and design and access statements
- Preparation of technical development surveys and assessments
- Managing stakeholder relations, exhibitions and public consultations
What environmental permitting services can we offer?
Obtaining the necessary consent to handle, treat, store or recovery wastes can be a lengthy process with detailed technical scrutiny of your proposed activities. If you are looking to meet development deadlines or obtain consents that do not impinge on your operations, it helps to get advice from industry experts with detailed knowledge of the environmental permitting system.
We have significant experience in preparing permit applications for all types of consents including waste exemptions, standard rules permits, bespoke permits, installation permits, and permits for the disposal or recovery of waste materials to land.
Our permitting service includes preparing and submitting supporting documents, liaison with the Environment Agency or Local Authority throughout the application, and advice on compliance with the conditions of the environmental permit once issued. We have experience in obtaining consents for the following types of waste activities:
- Biological treatment including anaerobic digestion and composting
- Waste transfer and treatment
- Energy from waste
- Hazardous waste treatment
- Land restoration
- Deployment for agricultural or ecological benefit
- End of waste applications
