The Environment Agency have brought out new enforcement guidelines referencing the CL:AIRE Definition of Waste Code of Practice (DoW CoP)
The following are the main points you’ll need to be aware of:
- The National House Building Council now requires to see a site verification report as part of the DoW CoP. The report needs to contain evidential documentation where soils have been imported on to your site including a declaration from a qualified person for each donor site.
- There is a 21 working day consultation/no objection period now being enforced by the EA before work starts, to give the EA time to approve the materials management plan (MMP).
- Specific guidance has been issued by the EA that requires as a minimum a desktop study for all sites, including Greenfield, if your intention is to export soils to another site.
- An EHO approved remediation strategy must be in place before formation of a MMP and any works can start.
