The way in which waste is managed has changed significantly over the last decade. National drivers for change- manifest in pricing and regulatory frameworks – continue to drive waste management up the hierarchy of sustainable waste management options.

The changes to the industry have brought their own planning challenges. New installations have been needed to facilitate the change in the way our wastes are managed. Significantly reduced inputs to landfill sites have also required creative solutions including the design of new landforms that fit within their receiving landscapes.

Stephenson Halliday have been assisting clients respond to this period of change and take a proactive approach to the future of the waste management industry. Our clients benefit from all our key services including Planning Advice, Landscape and Visual Assessment and Visualisation.

We also work with waste operators to assess alternative revenue streams from landholdings, including renewable energy developments. Read more on our Feasibility page.
