PPS 11: Planning and Waste Management
Policy WM 3: Restoration
8.17 Careful restoration and aftercare is essential to prepare landfill or land raising sites for a use which is compatible with the surrounding area. Proposals should be detailed, comprehensive, practical and achievable and they should help promote or enhance bio-diversity on the finished landform and the surrounding area. All applications for landfill and land raising operations should be accompanied by drawings illustrating typical cross-sections through the site and indicating depth of fill, capping details, final restoration contours, planting and other relevant details. Without the submission of all the required information and necessary detailed plans the Department is likely to refuse planning permission.
