Landfill Site & Silver Fields Quarry

Details & Location

Section 73 Extension of time application and Review of Minerals Permission (ROMP), for operational site near Penrith, Cumbria.


Consented December 2013

The Flusco site is a domestic landfill site and the adjacent Silver Fields site is a limestone quarry with permitted inert landfill operations.  Stephenson Halliday coordinated the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), and prepared and submitted the time extension and Review of Minerals Permission (ROMP) planning applications.

This involved the following stages:

  • A request for Screening Opinion;
  •  A request for a Scoping Opinion;
  • Design development of the amended phased working scheme and final restoration proposals;
  • Coordination of the EIA and planning application;
  • Preparation of the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA);
  • Preparation and submission of the Planning Statement, Environmental Statement and supporting planning application documentation.
  • After submission further liaison with Cumbria County Council was required and supplementary information submitted as part of a Regulation 22 Addendum Document.  We effectively addressed the points raised by the Council resulting in the application being recommended for approval, which was subsequently granted by the committee members.
