Stephenson Halliday provided planning and landscape and visual impact assessment support and coordinated other environmental appraisals for a planning application for a new street-sweepings processing facility on the former Packington landfill site.

The site will allow 100% recycling of street sweepings from several local authorities. The location in the green belt is a key policy challenge we are addressing. The application was submitted to a tight schedule and has emphasised the connection with existing waste processing facilities and the special circumstances justifying the location.
