Environmental Permit Application - Exeter
Acting on Instruction from a business in Exeter, Southwest Environmental were commissioned to undertake a environmental permit application for a bespoke end of life vehicles, waste facility (EOLV).
Environmental Permit Application -Site Condition Report
Owing to an an industrial past it was deemed appropriate to undertake soil sampling on site to establish baseline conditions before permit issue. This is not only a requirement of the permit application but helps safe guard the operator against liabilities arising from contaminated land.
Site works took place over two days, site surfacing although continuous was easily broken through, and sampling was completed in around 4 - 6 hours.
Samples are currently at the labs, and records of results will be placed in the site condition report.
Environmental Permit Application - EMS
The company do have aspirations to become accredited to ISO14001, and this would satisfy EMS requirements under the permit, but in the mean time the company will use a in house system.
The environmental management system was written by southwest environmental with aspects and impacts being carefully considered before the products of management matrices etc.
