Secondary liquid fuel and planning law

The Court of Appeal has held that the use of secondary liquid fuels (SLF) in lime kilns does not necessarily involve a material change use requiring planning permission in addition to authorisations from the Environment Agency. The ruling upholds last year's High Court decision (ENDS Report 308, pp 46-47 ) and will come as some relief to the cement industry, which has found itself involved in complex legal disputes over its growing use of waste-derived fuels.
