DCAN 12: Planning Control for Hazardous Substances
85. Like planning control, hazardous substances control does not apply to the Crown. However, where a Crown body wishes to keep or use a hazardous substance in circumstances which would otherwise have required hazardous substances consent, similar procedures to those pertaining to a hsc application should be followed, but on a nonstatutory basis.
86. The Department may, under Article 114 of the 1991 Order, grant hazardous substances consent in respect of Crown land in anticipation of its disposal. Any consent granted under this section applies only to the presence of a substance after the land has ceased to be Crown land; or, for so long as it continues to be Crown land, to the presence of a substance by virtue of a private interest in the land.
