Wm Hamilton and Sons operate an integrated waste management site offering treatment, transfer, and disposal options for a range of waste streams. Over recent years the services offered have expanded to serve both their own internal requirements and those of their customers. Developing services within the constraints of a regulated sector can be complicated.
As the range of services has developed GDG have worked with Wm Hamilton and Sons to ensure that both operational and regulatory needs are considered in the design phase. To enable the Circular Economy and diversion of waste from landfill, GDG have advised on planning related matters and prepared the required permit applications.
GDG have been a key advisor in relation to a planning extension for the site and have been tasked with discharging the pre-start conditions. A follow-on project to vary the PPC permit is now underway with DGD managing the process on behalf of the client.
