PPS 11: Planning and Waste Management
Policy WM 1: Environmental Information
6.2 Under Article 11 of the Planning (NI) Order 1991 planning permission is required for waste disposal on land whether it consists of engineering operations to infill land, the temporary deposit or the final disposal of waste material on land. Sufficient information should be submitted with a planning application to allow the Department to make an assessment of the potential environmental impact of each proposal. The amount of information required will depend upon the nature, scale and location of the proposal. In general the bigger, or the more technically complex, the scheme the more information that will be required. Where appropriate the Department will use its powers contained in the Planning (General Development) Order 1993 to request applicants to supply such additional information as is considered necessary to allow proper determination of planning applications.
