Amec Foster Wheeler helps secure permission for Guernsey waste infrastructure

  • Planning permission granted for major development

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today that it has been successful in supporting its client, Guernsey Waste, a States of Guernsey Trading Asset, in securing planning permission for a new 7,000 tonnes per annum household waste recycling centre and a 32,500 tonnes per annum waste transfer station on the island of Guernsey. These facilities are required to meet the objectives of the Island’s approved Waste Strategy, in particular by treating waste as a resource and diverting it from landfill.

The planning application, which received no public objection, was considered by Guernsey’s Development and Planning Authority on 27 July. Following detailed review, Authority members unanimously resolved to approve the application, which will allow the States of Guernsey to deliver its planned waste management strategy for the island.

Amec Foster Wheeler provided a wide range of environmental and planning services in support of the application, including design, environmental impact assessment, environmental statement production, transport and flood risk assessment, as well as leading on stakeholder and community engagement.

We are delighted to have helped achieve planning approval for this critical infrastructure in Guernsey, which will significantly reduce the volume of waste being sent to landfill and reduce its environmental impact.

Amec Foster Wheeler is a recognised leader in waste planning, procurement and strategy development. Supporting the States of Guernsey to deliver its strategic waste objectives further demonstrates our ability as a one-stop infrastructure planning-to-construction provider.
