Permits & Licences

Geotechnology has obtained permits for the development of all classes of landfill for clients, including inert, non-hazardous and hazardous landfills. The application process for landfill permits is complex and applications have to be supported with significant technical documentation and risk assessments. Geotechnology is able to prepare all such documents and carries out the supporting risk assessments in-house. The practice is unique in supporting the Environment Agency in its assessment of permit applications, so it is well placed to assist clients in submitting applications.

As well as landfill projects the practice is able to provide supporting documents, risk assessments and permit applications for waste treatment facilities (such as transfer stations) and civic amenity areas. Geotechnology is also able to review draft permits and draft variations to permits to ensure the clients interests are protected.
