Buckinghamshire County Council, as the Waste Disposal Authority for Buckinghamshire, are developing a replacement transfer facility at the High Heavens Waste Complex on Clay Lane, Booker, SL7 3DJ.
The proposed building will replace the existing out-of-date infrastructure used for food, garden and bulky waste transfer activities. It will incorporate modern environmental controls and provide a safer and more comfortable workplace for the site staff. The proposed facility will help ensure that the movement of food, garden and bulky waste materials produced by Buckinghamshire residents continues in the most efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way.
The need for a biowaste transfer station
Why do we need modern waste infrastructure in Buckinghamshire? Using waste transfer activities reduces the number of vehicles transporting waste around the county, reducing overall transport emissions, and making Buckinghamshire’s recycling system even more environmentally friendly.
A replacement, modern waste transfer building is being proposed at the High Heavens Waste Complex. If constructed, it will enable the Council, as the Waste Disposal Authority, to bring existing operations indoors and minimise the impacts of waste handling activities on neighbouring areas. This design and planning application replaces the previously consented scheme (consented in August 2018) and this is not a further development.
Before the planning application is submitted, we are inviting local residents and other interested parties to meet with the project delivery team at drop in session on Thursday 16th May between 1.30pm & 6.30pm. Residents can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions and give their feedback.
The deadline for feedback during this pre-application process is 5pm on Thursday 6th June.
