PERMISSION has been granted for the Grundon hazardous waste transfer station in Ewelme to be permanently retained and extended. Two new buildings will be added to the south of the existing depot in Goulds Grove following approval from South Oxfordshire District Council.
One building will be used to store flammable products and the other will house a new aerosol and paint cans processing and recycling plant.
Several conditions have been put in place before the extension can be built. These include a site investigation scheme to assess risks, a scheme to dispose of foul and surface water, a construction traffic management plan and a limit on acceptable noise levels during the hours of operation. The site will be able to operate from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and 7am to 1pm on Saturdays.
Temporary permission for current waste transfer operations at the depot was due to expire in December.
Grundon had planned to replace the existing hazardous waste transfer station, which has been operating since August 2011, with a permanent station but now says this is “no longer feasible”.
