Proposed improvements to our Chilton Recycling Facility have been granted planning permission following the submission of a Non Material Amendment to Oxfordshire County Council by the Estates and Planning team.
The improvements include extensions to the concrete surfacing of the facility, including the weighbridge and yard area. These changes will improve health and safety and benefit waste management operations, subsequently enhancing the quality of sorted materials to be recycled.
The Estates and Planning team worked closely with the site team to consider all potential environmental impacts of this proposal, including landscape/visual impacts, ecology, hydrology, archaeology, traffic, dust/odour and noise impacts. As it included only extensions to existing hard surfaces, it was agreed that the proposal would have no direct adverse impacts to the local amenity or the local environment.
Works are due to start imminently along with surfacing improvements to the site access road.
