Secretary of State makes decision on waste scheme

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has resolved to uphold our proposals, which will allow us to accept waste with small amounts of radioactivity at our existing hazardous landfill facility in East Northamptonshire. The Environment Agency has also now issued an authorisation permit for the disposal of these wastes.

Naturally, we are very pleased that our planning application has withstood the close examination of the Inquiry and that the Secretary of State has upheld our proposals for East Northamptonshire Resource Management Facility (ENRMF). His support joins that of the Environment Agency in allowing this important scheme to go ahead. The company will examine the Inspector’s report in detail over the next few days and decide how best to respond to his advice.

We appealed the decision of Northamptonshire County Council’s Development Control Committee not to permit the company’s ENRMF to accept Low Level Waste (LLW), as they did not believe the decision was based on sound scientific or planning grounds. The application was subsequently the subject of intense scrutiny during a rigorous three week Planning Inquiry. Following the submission of the Planning Inspector’s recommendations to the Secretary of State in March 2011, he has agreed with the Inspector’s conclusions that the appeal should be upheld.

We hope that members of the local community who have had reservations about these proposals can be reassured that both the Secretary of State and the Environment Agency would not authorise permission for disposal of these wastes unless they were completely satisfied that they present negligible risk to human health or the environment. We look forward to continue working with the local community and their elected representatives as we take these proposals forward.
