The environmental permit for the operation of the Grange Landfill site was issued by the Environment Agency and is regulated by them. The Environment Agency undertake inspections of the site to ensure the permit is being complied with. They also monitor the ground water and gas.
The Council has no regulatory powers in relation to operations within the site boundary and any issues on the site would be regulated by the Environment Agency. At the current time there is no scientific evidence that would enable the Council to undertake additional testing to support the Environment Agency’s statutory role.
