SUMMARY


- Application to vary wording of condition No. 18 from:-

"No Hazardous waste as defined within the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 shall be stored or processed at the site, (to define the permission and to ensure that the facility does not store or process potentially hazardous waste in accordance with Local Plan Policy ME2)."


To:-


"No Hazardous waste as defined within the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 shall be stored or processed at the site, other than the temporary storage of hazardous waste which is produced as a by product of the approved facility (to define the permission and to ensure that the facility does not store or process potentially hazardous waste in accordance with Local Plan Policy ME2).".


- Objections received


- Recommended for conditional approval.


INTRODUCTION


The condition as drafted effectively prevents the operation of the EfW facility as approved. It was always the intention for the facility to produce a certain amount of hazardous waste as a by product of the incineration process, and for this to be stored on site temporarily prior to being removed from the site.


This application seeks to rectify this situation by seeking a variation to the condition. It is not intended to allow the importation of any hazardous waste to the site for treatment


SITE


The application site is located approximately 1km south of the main residential fringe of Hull (Greatfield) and 4.5km (2.8m) east of Hull city centre, immediately east of King George Dock and to the South of Hedon Road (A1033) . It lies close to the banks of the Humber on flat industrial land within the setting of the existing Associated British Ports (ABP) complex.


PROPOSAL


Application to vary wording of condition No. 18 of Planning approvals 29745 and 29745A from:-


"No Hazardous waste as defined within the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 shall be stored or processed at the site, (to define the permission and to ensure that the facility does not store or process potentially hazardous waste in accordance with Local Plan Policy ME2)."


To:-


"No Hazardous waste as defined within the Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005 shall be stored or processed at the site, other than the temporary storage of hazardous waste which is produced as a by product of the approved facility (to define the permission and to ensure that the facility does not store or process potentially hazardous waste in accordance with Local Plan Policy ME2)."


PLANNING HISTORY


29745 and 29745A

Construction of an Energy from Waste (EfW) facility and associated buildings/works partly within the Hull area and partly within the East Riding of Yorkshire area.

8/1/07 – Approved with Conditions


REPRESENTATIONS


Consultee/Group Comments

R+D (Development Plans) Comments awaited


ENV HEALTH (Env Protection) Comments awaited


HSE No comments received.


Health and Safety Executive did not advise, on safety grounds, against the granting of planning permission approved in January.


CABE No objections


Environment Agency We generally support the proposed change given that the air pollution control (APC) residues produced by the plant would most likely be classed as Hazardous Waste. Provision will have to be made for the waste to be stored and handled safely. This will be covered under the PPC Permit.


East Riding of Yorkshire Council Being considered at 30/8/07 Committee, comments to be reported on update sheet.


Friends of the Earth (Hull) The application lacks sufficient clarity to make an informed decision and unless obtained is a potential risk to heath.


The meaning of temporary must be defined.


The storage methods must be established.


HOTI The approved condition was clear, what happened since the approval to make the proposed changes necessary?


Hull & Holderness Opposing The Incinerator


Why was this not in the original application?


The meaning of temporary must be defined.


How much hazardous waste will be stored?


Where/how will the hazardous waste be stored and what would be the life expectancy of this storage?


How would the facility cope with flooding?


How will the Hazardous waste be handled and transferred to the storage facility?


What will be the frequency of collections?


Have any other conditions been changed that have not required planning approval?


Highways Agency No objections.


Natural England No comments to make.


Yorkshire Forward No comments


Hedon Town Council Hedon Town Council strongly objects to this proposal to vary conditions and reiterates its strong objection to the development of this plant.


The applicants were fully aware of these conditions and were happy to accept them in full and proceed accordingly. We are now concerned to note that they need to vary the wording of this extremely fundamental condition and wonder what could possibly have changed to make the initial condition unacceptable?

Hedon Town Council would like more information upon the proposal to allow temporary storage of hazardous waste particularly in the light of the recent extensive flooding of the site. How can WRG be certain that whilst hazardous waste is being stored on site it will not be allowed to pollute the soil and water courses should similar extreme conditions prevail in the future.


In the opinion of Hedon Town Council this is such a fundamental variation it should surely be the subject of a full new application for the storage of hazardous waste on site.


Cllr Waudby Opposes the application on behalf of the residents of Marfleet


88 Letters received raising the following issues:-


1. Permission should not be granted, soon other conditions would be ignored.


2. If Condition 18 is frittered away, as it would be by the clumsy modification, ‘temporary storage’ suggested, then residents will no longer have cause for any trust in the planning system or the Planning Committee.


3. What is the hazardous waste_


4. If the wording is to be varied it should be modified so legally exactly as to be interpretable in only one way.


5. The vote to allow the incinerator was very close and I am sure that the conditions placed on the operators will have had a bearing on those who thought it should be permitted. It is now made clear by this request that plant will produce hazardous waste even when the waste fed into it is not Hazardous. If the change was needed by WRG to operate the plant then it should have been requested at the original planning meeting as it may have produce a different outcome. The whole application should be reconsidered if this condition cannot be meet as it was a key part of the original process.


6. The waste growth on which the project was based has again not happened. Hull city council has just reported another good drop in Household waste per head down 2.4% to 484.9Kg per year. That is about another 3,000 tonnes short that the plant will need to import from outside Hull.


7. Any modification at all, of Condition 18, which allows ash to remain, be stored, or be treated on-site, will destroy the fragile faith we have in the planning approval.


8. It seems to be a logical alteration.


9. The proposal would be a hazard to the residents of Hedon.


10. The conditions should be varied to allow the storage of the waste for no more than 3 months.


11. How long does temporary mean?


12. If there is always going to be hazardous waste there shouldn’t it be described as permanent?


13. How would the waste be stored?


14. How much waste would be stored?


15. How would flooding affect the facility and the proposed waste storage?


16. The site was flooded for at least 10 days recently. An aerial photograph has been submitted illustrating this.


17. This proposal would lead to a health hazard.


18. When this application was approved we were assured that no hazardous waste would be produced or handled. This is moving the goal posts. They should start again.


19. The application should be covered by an Environmental Statement.


20. Why was the application only made to Hull when previously East Riding of Yorkshire Council also received an application?


21. How does the current application sit within the waste strategy and does it have a sustainability approval?


22. How would hazardous waste be transported to and from the site?


23. Many representatives have requested an opportunity to speak at the Committee.


24. This matter should have been discussed at the Liaison Panel, of which nothing has been heard off.


25. Who is going to monitor the storage of the Hazardous Waste?


26. Reject the proposal and work towards a modern Autoclave plant that will not produce any toxic material.


27. Will there be a cap on the maximum amount of waste stored?


28. Where will the waste end up?


29. The wording is too ambiguous, it could involve waste from the waste transfer station, which could be considered part of the process.


30. If hazardous waste is produced then it follows that there will be hazardous/toxic emissions to the air.


31. The proposed variation would put the health of the population, including schoolchildren at risk. Officers and members would be liable for such an error.


32. Will waste from other incinerating facilities also be stored at the site?


33. Why weren’t East Riding of Yorkshire Council consulted and why is this matter not being considered by the Hull and East Riding Joint Waste Disposal Committee?


34. Bottom Ash may be classified as Hazardous Waste in the future due to zinc oxide being present.


APPLICANTS CASE


The definition of hazardous waste covers many things and includes among other things hydraulic oils, brake fluids, fluorescent tubes and Flue Gas Treatment Residues. These and other materials classed as Hazardous Waste will be produced by the process in its normal operation, These materials will then normally be expected to be stored at the site before being sent for appropriate treatment elsewhere.


For the avoidance of doubt the Environmental Statement submitted with the original planning application clearly states that flue gas treatment residue will be stored on site before being transported off site for treatment elsewhere.


The Environmental Statement also clearly identifies flue gas treatment residues as being classed as hazardous waste.


The planning condition 18 prevents this storage of flue gas treatment residue and so an application has been made to change this condition and enable the plant to operate as described in the submitted Environmental Statement.


There is no change proposed to the facility, the way it will operate, the materials stored on site or used on site or to be burnt in the EFW.


Below are extracts from the original Environmental Statement submitted with the planning application


Chapter 4 Description of Development


Flue Gas Treatment Residues


4.3.34 FGT residues comprise fine particles of ash and residues from the flue gas treatment process which have collected in bag filters. They comprise mainly lime and spent carbon from the gas cleaning process, together with salts and traces of heavy metals and dioxins. Approximately 12,000 tonnes of residues will be produced each year. The residue will be stored in sealed silos within the EfW building.


4.3.35 Due to the lime in the FGT residues, they are alkaline and are classified as hazardous waste (like cement). As a result, the residues will be removed from site via vacuum tanker for safe disposal at a suitably licensed landfill facility such as WRG’s site at Winterton in North Lincolnshire. Alternatively, FGT residues can be reused in industrial processes and there is some established practice of doing this at existing EfW plants in the UK. WRG will utilise industrial re-use in preference to landfill disposal, subject to viability.


Chapter 6 Traffic and Transportation Issues


6.5.10 Other materials arise in such relatively small volumes that it is less realistic to envisage them being transported by rail given current economics and rail logistics. However, the existence of the network of rail sidings in the immediate docks area is such that if rail becomes more viable in the future, the opportunities for utilising rail transport will be investigated. Compared to many other possible sites for the EfW, the existence of rail sidings at Salt End represents a major advantage and opportunity. After bottom ash, the next largest arising is flue gas treatment residues, which need to be disposed of at a hazardous waste landfill. By weight and volume this is a small amount of material. It is transported in tanker units into which it is loaded from a silo. At present this operation lends itself to specialist road vehicles. The destination of the material will be Winterton landfill site in North Lincolnshire, which does not have rail access and to which the quickest route is via the Humber Bridge.


FGT Residues


5.3.3 Flue gas treatment (FGT) residues from the EfW facility at 12,000 tpa will be transported from the site to the hazardous waste treatment site at Winterton. This material will be transported by tanker at an average load of 20t giving rise to some 600 loads a year. Assuming deliveries on weekdays and Saturdays would give rise to 2 deliveries a day on average. The vehicles will use the A63/A1033 trunk road corridor.
