Recycling and waste developers guidance

Planning your development

It is important that planning of the storage and collection of waste is given a high priority in the
design process to ensure that proposals stand the highest chance of obtaining planning permission.

Pro-active consultation, including pre-planning application discussions, with the local authority at an
early stage is essential to:

  • reduce any re-design after construction
  • understand existing arrangement and planned changes to the method of collection arising
    from Council policies
  • provide hygienic storage of waste avoiding excess noise and dust
  • ensure appropriate access for collection vehicles.
