The Scottish Government has published new legislation concerning the planning procedures where hazardous substances are involved: The Town and Country Planning (Hazardous Substances) (Scotland) Regulations 2015 (SSI 181).
Schedule 1 of the Regulations list in detail those hazardous substances covered, including maximum permitted quantities and concentrations for some specific substances such as polychlorodibenzofurans and polychlorodibenzodioxins. There will be a need for those making an application under this legislation to ensure these are properly measured using an accredited and robust analytical procedure.
