WEST OF BEWBUSH [KILNWOOD VALE] JOINT AREA ACTION PLAN [JAAP] 2009 – HORSHAM DISTRICT COUNCIL AND CRAWLEY BOROUGH COUNCIL

1.20 Around a third of the developable land West of Bewbush was subject to tipping between 1977 and 2006. Material tipped in the area is largely construction waste of silts and clays and does not contain domestic refuse. The site has been monitored, including boreholes and water quality sampling, since 2002.

Some issues of contamination have been identified

but the extensive assessment work that has been carried out confirms that the site can be developed for residential use with appropriate remediation. The remediation works will be undertaken before the commencement of Core Phase Two, through a full programme of agreed land remediation works.

The first stage of these works was the surrender of the Waste Management Licence. The application for the surrender was made after a programme of monitoring had been agreed with the Environment Agency. The application for the surrender was submitted, by the landfill operator, to the Environment Agency in October 2008 and was accepted by the Agency in early 2009.

The second stage is the physical remediation of the site. It is anticipated that some landfill material will be removed from the site and that the landform will be remodelled. This provides opportunities in terms of masterplanning the new neighbourhood. Details regarding the landfill site and available remediation options are set out in the background documents to this Joint Area Action Plan.
