Planning Permission Support

Planning Permission Support

Albion Environmental Ltd continues to provide a comprehensive service to companies either wishing to enter the waste and recycling market or expand their existing premises.

We had a number of successes over the last year with planning permission being gained for a number of facilities. We develop a close link with the client and with their key contractors. This ensures maximum use of all resources.

Planning Permission

Our preferred option is to work in conjunction with the client’s local planning expert, and provide the necessary technical support as required. This has the advantage that any public opposition to the proposal will be more obvious and clearly identified by the client and local planning expert. Work can then be done, at a local level, to resolve and minimise these issues.

This strategy has proved very successful in the past with planning permission being gained for 100% of the sites applied for. For examples please visit our recent news items for details of the Billy Bowie, Luce Bay, and Corrie Skip Hire permissions.

To find out more please contact us.

Planning Permission Appeals

Unfortunately the planning application process is extremely slow and can be influenced by political pressures rather than true environmental issues. Frequently applications will have to go to appeal either due to the slow progress being made at council level or due to refusal by the Planning Committee.

Albion Environmental Ltd specialises in preparing appeals to gain planning permission. Again we have won 100% of all appeals applied for. The most recent appeal also resulted in Albion Environmental Ltd being awarded costs due to the “unreasonable behavior of the local authority”. See News Items

If you have a planning application, which has been ongoing for months, or you have been refused planning permission please do not hesitate to contact Alasdair Meldrum for an informal discussion.
