Environment Agency - Historic Landfill Sites

Alternative names
The polygon and attributes describe where the sites were located, when they were used, who used them and what was deposited. In other words, where, when, who and what. This means there are name and address fields, licensee and operator information, licence issue and surrender dates, first and last input dates, and waste types, together with some historical comments.

This data is to be used when planning new developments within 250m of a site that has been used within the last 30 years as included in Article 10(1)(x) of the Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) Order 1995.

More Information
From the User Guide: " We have made every effort to ensure the accuracy of this data, including cross referencing historical records where multiple records existed. However, please note that we have given equal weighting to soft (computer) and hard (paper format) copy data unless we had evidence to the contrary. Remember that the very nature of the data is that it is old information and as such should be expected to be incomplete, contradictory or difficult to be certain of its accuracy."
