Review of Old Mineral Permissions (ROMP)

The Environment Act 1995 placed a duty on the County Council to review and update mineral planning permissions granted after 30 June 1948. Active sites were dealt with in two key stages:

  • ‘Initial Reviews’ – enable the  Mineral Planning Authority to update older (pre 1982) mineral planning permissions by imposing modern operating, restoration and aftercare conditions.
  • ‘Periodic Reviews’ – are required for all ‘ROMP’ permissions every 15 years. However, this frequency has since been relaxed under the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013 which enables site operators to request a deferment where there has been no material change of circumstances.

Halletec Environmental has extensive experience in the submission of planning applications for minerals and waste including ROMPs.
