A planning application submitted by FCC Environment for a waste transfer station at London Road, near Amersham has now been forwarded to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

This follows the Environment Agency’s withdrawal of its objection to the application, subject to a number of conditions, in response to the applicant submitting a revised drainage plan.

In May this year, the planning application for London Road East was considered by Buckinghamshire County Council’s Development Control Committee.

The committee indicated it is in support of the application subject to the outstanding objection from the Environment Agency (EA) being overcome; the application being forwarded to the Secretary of State for his consideration; and the developer entering into a legal agreement to secure the routing of lorries.

Should the Secretary of State not intervene, then the Council’s Head of Planning and Environment is authorised to grant consent for London Road East  which would be subject to more than 60 conditions in total.
