Abstract

This research identifies the barriers (e.g. planning) and drivers for the development of new non-municipal wastes management facilities in Northamptonshire, an English County in the East Midlands of England. The aim of the research was to give guidance to policy makers and planners at all levels so as to enable them to make informed decisions for the selection of sites for new facilities. This is key within England as public opposition to the siting of new facilities has meant that political decision-makers often fail to take a clear stand and follow sound scientific and technical advice. England therefore has a major problem in siting of new facilities to enable them to meet European-led targets by 2010. Key recommendations are given as to how decision-makers can move forward by carefully selecting sites well in advance of planning applications and so avoid the public opposition that often occurs
