Summary Briefing Note 9
• Britaniacrest Recycling Limited have applied for a permit variation from us to add mechanical sorting and an energy recovery facility to its existing site off Langhurstwood Road, Horsham.
• We closed our first public consultation on this permit variation application on 2 August 2021 and have been assessing the documents since then.
• We have carefully considered all of the documents provided to us by Britaniacrest Recycling Limited, as well as your consultation comments. We cannot find any reason that would cause us to refuse the
permit variation application.
• We think we may issue the permit variation to Britaniacrest Recycling Limited; this is called a ‘minded to’ decision.
• We have written a draft permit variation document and a draft decision document. We would like you to read them. Please send any comments by 26 June 2022 11.59pm.
• We will make our final decision once we have reviewed your comments.
