Risk Based Framework For Aberdeenshire Council

EPG has been appointed by Aberdeenshire Council to develop a risk based framework for reducing the planning consultation zones around old small landfill sites.

The framework is to be used to determine a site specific consultation zone for each site outside which there is  reasonable confidence there is no risk to property from gas migration; for small, older sites this will be far less than the current default of 250m.

The approach will draw on EPG’s risk assessment skills and will also use guidance from other countries.   The approach should also be suitable for other areas  where there are many small infilled ponds, gravel pits or similar features that do not pose a significant risk of gas migration.
