Virtual exhibition

The future of the East Northants Resource Management Facility (ENRMF)

Augean has been committed for many years to working alongside local communities to create a greater understanding of any planning applications made by the company. We recognise that the nature of our business and the wastes that are manged can generate concern in those living and working near our sites, therefore we try to promote opportunities for the community to learn more about the wastes we accept and how we operate.

We are unable to hold physical public exhibitions due to the present Covid-19 restrictions. This online exhibition provides an equivalent if not better opportunity to view our proposals and to respond with your comments

Purpose of the exhibition

  • Introduce you to our plans to extend the area and lifetime of the ENRMF which will include an extension to the west of the existing landfill site.

  • The need to increase the throughput of the waste treatment facility to optimise the ability to treat, recover and reuse materials that would otherwise be landfilled or to reduce their polluting potential before landfilling.

  • Explain the types of hazardous and radioactive materials are managed at the site

  • Describe how the site is engineered, operated, monitored and regulated to ensure it is safe.

  • Describe how we carry out risk assessments and control potential environmental impacts of the proposals.

  • As the proposed development is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project, explain the application process for a Development Consent Order and how you can become involved in the process.

  • Augean is committed to listen, take account of and respond to the comments of the local community in informing the final preparation of the application.

  • Most of all we want to provide clarity about what is proposed

The formal pre-application consultation will end on 14 December 2020.

The proposals at ENRMF are classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) under the Planning Act 2008 and consent must be granted by the Secretary of State in the form of a Development Consent Order (DCO). Augean must submit a DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS), an impartial public body whose role is to consider all important and relevant matters and whether consent should be granted for nationally significant infrastructure projects. We are at the pre-application stage of the process which is set out below.

What happens next

An analysis of the responses we receive will be included in a Consultation Report that will accompany the application for a DCO. We will report back to the local community to let you know how we have responded to the comments we have received during the consultation process when we submit the application.

PINS will first decide, on behalf of the Secretary of State, whether to accept the application. If accepted, PINS will appoint an independent examiner or panel of examiners (referred to as the Examining Authority) who carry out a six month examination with hearings and consider any representations made by interested parties. Following the examination, the Examining Authority will make a recommendation to the Secretary of State who will then decide whether or not a DCO should be made.

Further information regarding the DCO application process is set out in the exhibition or can be found on the National Infrastructure Planning website at:

https://infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/application-process/the-process/

or by telephone on 0303 444 5000

It is anticipated that the application will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in late Spring 2021. If the application is accepted this would mean that the 6 month examination process would start during the latter part of 2021 with a final decision on the application made in the summer of 2022.

Once the application has been submitted and is accepted for examination, we will advertise in the news media and notify all our stakeholders.
