PPS 11: Planning and Waste Management
Policy WM 1: Compatibility with Adjacent Development
6.9 Certain waste management facilities, such as landfill sites or incinerators can cause significant amenity problems for the occupiers of neighbouring properties. However, it is not always necessary or appropriate to separate waste management facilities, especially small-scale developments such as civic amenity sites and recycling plants, from residential or other sensitive uses, provided they will not cause detriment to amenity by reason of noise, dust or noxious emissions. The Department will not therefore restrict development solely because it differs from the predominant land use in the locality.
