DCAN 12: Planning Control for Hazardous Substances
Waste land-fill sites
79. Regulation 4(5) of the Regulations exempts hazardous substances present at waste land-fill sites (for the purposes of disposal to waste land-fill) from the consent procedures. The presence of such substances may of course be subject to controls exercised through the waste management licensing system to be introduced by the Environment and Heritage Service. The exemption does not apply to wastes being disposed of by means of incineration.
