Development On or Near Landfill Sites - Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG)

Approved Planning Policies Banner


This document sets out the criteria we will consider when determining planning applications close or on landfill sites. The guidelines are intended to assist developers to identify the development potential and issues that need to be considered with developing such sites.

Ground contamination and potential gas migration are planning considerations which need to be addressed in any application and the guidelines set out the procedures for carrying out the necessary surveys. The document also sets out how we will use this survey information and which other departments of the Council to involve at which stage.

The guidelines below were adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance in 1989.

Document Status : Statutory Policy Document - Adopted 1989
