Dear Kent County Council,
Your planning department should be aware that TDC are presently in the process of replacing the existing aggregate wharf, berth 4/5, with a substantially larger pontoon berth. It is intended that this new pontoon berth will accommodate a new, greatly upgraded aggregate conveyor with a processing capacity of 3,000 tonnes per hour. The new convey?or will be deployed and operated by Brett Aggregates.
- can you please advise me if this new conveyor system will require:
- planning permission?
- an EIA, since the new facility will greatly increase capacity compare to the existing system?
- a DEFRA License?
