We can help with your planning applications or change of use for your manufacturing or waste facility by producing all of the documents and surveys required by your local authority or county council. Most waste and minerals facilities are regulated by county councils not local authorities. We have a track record of helping waste businesses with waste and minerals planning application to the county council.
Our services for waste and minerals planning applications are bespoke due to the specific nature of the application and the business itself. The success of your application will depend heavily on whether you address the specific environmental impacts that affect your particular location. If you are located in or close to a SSSI, then you are far more likely to have to address concerns over impacts on the environment than if you are situated in an industrial estate in a city setting.
We have a good record of applying for and dealing with local authorities and county councils on planning for industrial sites and responding to representations from statutory consultees. The process may be lengthy, it is not unusual for a complex planning application for a waste management operation to take upwards of a year or two before it is granted.

After several failed attempts trying to deal with the EA ourselves, we eventually employed Paul to complete our ELV permit transfer from a previous site owner. His consultancy service was professional and resulted in the EA completing a successful transfer of ownership from the previous owner to us.
