6.50 The following two scenarios were developed in the preparation of the Plan.

6.51 The two scenarios tested in Table 9 show that by the end of 2001 Hampshire will still have significant permitted inert (Category A) waste landfill capacity remaining. Under the 'Worst Case' scenario remaining permitted void capacity would stand at approximately 11.8 million cubic metres. This would increase under the 'Best Case' scenario to approximately 13.0 million cubic metres. Revision of these scenarios in the light of more recent information on permitted void space, as referred to in paragraph 6.38 above, reduces this range of surplus inert waste void space to between 6.6 and 7.7 million cubic metres. Notwithstanding this reduction, in view of the large surplus of permitted void space that is expected to remain at the end of the Plan period, it is considered unnecessary to identify additional sites for inert waste landfill in the Plan.
