Hafren routinely undertakes the necessary hydrological and hydrogeological assessments needed to support Planning Applications for restoration of a site via landfilling. We also advise on the more detailed input required at the Permitting stage. The latter commonly involves the design and implementation of monitoring programmes, including the installation of monitoring boreholes, identification of sensitive receptors and potential impacts via qualitative or quantitative methods. Liaison and negotiation with the regulators is undertaken by ourselves at many stages of the landfill cycle.
On-going support to operators is offered in the form of annual monitoring reviews, advice on permit variations, through to eventual surrender. Advice is also offered on the use of Permits for recovery of waste materials and the re-restoration of historical, poorly restored landfills. Our clients include, amongst others, Tarmac, Colliers Industrial Waste Ltd, Crapper & Sons, Bullimore Sand and Gravel, Smiths Construction, Middleton Aggregates, Grundon Waste Ltd.
