We worked closely with the client's estates team to develop a forward master plan for the whole site, support their planning application and prepare the permit variation application to the Environment Agency. We were successful in obtaining the permit variation which provided for a highly efficient methodology of infilling the site, both in construction cost and landfill tax-saving terms.
The permit variation application was complex involving the preparation of quantitative groundwater and geotechnical risk assessments and innovative waste acceptance protocols. Subsequently, a separate permit was secured for a hazardous soil wastes treatment facility on the site. Byrne Looby has also installed new environmental monitoring boreholes and provides ongoing regulatory compliance advice.
