Minerals and Waste
Policy 53: The Waste Planning Authorities will permit plant, machinery, buildings and other development ancillary to waste disposal, processing and transfer facilities within the boundary of or adjacent to the facility, provided that:
(i) the development is required solely in connection with the operation, administration or servicing of the waste facility; and
(ii) any plant, machinery, building or other structure is to be designed, constructed and landscaped so as to minimise any adverse impact on the amenities of the area and, in any case, it would not be likely to give rise to any unacceptable environmental or traffic impact or other detrimental effect; and
(iii) the size, type and nature of the development are appropriate to the scale of the waste facility for which it is required; and
(iv) any plant, machinery, building or other structure would be removed as soon as the use of the waste facility has ceased and the site would be restored to a satisfactory condition suitable for an agreed beneficial after-use.
6.102 Ancillary development associated with waste disposal facilities includes:
(i) buildings, plant and equipment required for the recycling and storage of, or the recovery of resources from, waste as part of an integrated resource recovery waste processing operation;
(ii) buildings, plant and equipment required for the collection and utilisation of landfill gas from deposited waste in a landfill site;
(iii) household waste recycling facilities provided at household waste disposal sites for the receipt of household waste delivered by the public;
(iv) buildings, plant and equipment required for the administration or servicing of a waste disposal facility; and
(v) storage of waste skips and containers at waste disposal facilities in suitable areas set aside for that purpose.
6.103 In the case of ancillary development provided at a temporary waste disposal facility, the Waste Planning Authority will normally require the development to be removed at the end of the active life of the facility. Ancillary development will only be permitted to remain at a completed facility if there is a clear need for it to be retained at that location and its continued presence does not conflict with surrounding land uses or the planning policies for the area.
