Ben King attends Environmental Industries Commission's Brownfield Contaminated Land Working Grou

Ben King recently attended the Environment Industries Commission’s Brownfield Contaminated Land Working Group to engage in a discussion with Peter Elliott, Senior Advisor, E&B Waste Regulation, Landfill and Definition of Waste, Environment Agency regarding Definition of Waste Code of Practice and Waste Permits.

The discussion followed a letter that Mr Elliot had sent to the group responding to a series of queries posed by members. The presentation and subsequent discussion produced a better understanding of how the Environment Agency is interpreting their own recovery or disposal guidance and how best to frame the recovery versus disposal argument. Although some issues were clarified this remains a difficult area of policy, particularly for the larger potential recovery sites and early engagement with the concepts involved at the planning stage, are advised to enable a successful application.
