To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to review planning policy guidance on buffer zones between sensitive receptors and waste facilities.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 6 March 2017
Scottish Planning Policy is clear that planning authorities should consider the need for buffer zones between dwellings or other sensitive receptors and certain waste management facilities. We have no plans to review this particular policy at this time, however we will update Scottish Planning Policy in due course.
