No permit needed for small-scale remediation schemes for three years

The Environment Agency (EA) has extended a regulatory position statement (RPS) for certain contaminated land cleanup projects that involve the treatment of waste for recovery.

The regulator’s RPS 215, covering “site-specific pilot trials to see if an established remediation technique will work on the waste material” and for small-scale remediation schemes was issued in August last year. It allows applicable projects to avoid the need to apply for an environmental permit if certain conditions are met. When published, the EA said that it would review the RPS in September this year.

The document, revised today, now states that it will be reviewed three years later.
