Bank holiday waste hours extended

A condition limiting the times at which household waste could be delivered to a Cheshire landfill site has been relaxed after an inspector held that revisions were justified, especially for bank holidays.

The appellants asserted that domestic waste collection requirements had changed significantly since planning permission was granted, primarily because of recycling and the need to divert waste from landfill sites under various national and European legislation. This meant that landfill sites had to operate more flexibly to meet the need to accommodate non-recyclable waste, they argued.

The inspector noted that the access road leading to the site was bounded by residential properties and considered that some control over delivery times was required. However, he decided that a two-and-a-half-hour extension of the period during which waste could be dropped on bank holidays and Saturdays at Easter, Christmas and the new year was unlikely to lead to a noticeable increase in traffic levels and noise.
