H&J Metals ELV Permit Application
We helped H&J Metals with an end of life vehicles – ELV permit application for the dismantling and de-pollution of ELVs. The bespoke application required a higher level of habitat and ecology surveys than usual due to the presence of a nearby SSSI. Advice was given on a surface water system to ensure that no surface water was allowed to enter or have an impact on the SSSI.
A fire prevention plan was also required as part of the end of life vehicles environmental permit application along with noise and vibration surveys, dust management plans and a site condition report.
What We Delivered
The bespoke ELV permit application which was required due to the proximity of a SSSI required a rather complex negotiation with the Environment Agency regarding the fire prevention plan and associated surveys. A permit was finally issued with good regulatory controls in place to safeguard the environment and provide a level of improvement in infrasturcture regarding the surface water and hardstanding areas of the yard.
