Zoning of land in terms of EPA90 / COPLAR

George Niblock made this Freedom of Information request to Highland Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Highland Council,

A Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse (COPLAR) was published for the UK in accordance with S89(7) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and this was updated in Scotland in 2006. It is understood to again be under review in Scotland.
This enquiry, in terms of the Freedom of Information Act / Environmental Information (S) Regs 2004 seeks information on what actions your council has taken to date to “have regard” to COPLAR, with the objective of understanding how ‘Duty Bodies’ in Scotland are meeting their legal duties.
COPLAR requires all duty bodies to allocate their land to zones as laid out in COPLAR to recognise their differing cleansing needs. Such zoning should be reviewed periodically to ensure that it is appropriate and to reflect changes in land use.

1 ZONING: Since 1996, give the date(s) on each occasion the duty body has zoned all or part of its relevant land and relevant roads?

It is recommended that zoning be done after a period of consultation and that the allocation must be given due publicity

2 ZONING DOCUMENT: How is the zoning publicised and where may a copy of the zoning be seen?
3 CONSULTATION: Please enclose a copy of each consultation and outcome(s) document
4 PUBLICITY: Please state the method(s) used in each case to publicise the consultation

Yours faithfully,

George Niblock

Highland Council
