Decision details

Development of HGV trailer park on Site Ha, Horsham ECC01 (22/23)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The County Council has a requirement to have an arrangement in place for the storage of trailers that deal with the removal of Refuse Derived Fuel from the MBT (Mechanical Biological Treatment) Plant, at Brookhurst Wood in Horsham. 


WSCC owns land adjacent to the MBT Facility known as Site Ha, which is currently clear and vacant.  The aim of this project is for WSCC to develop its own hardstanding area for the storage of trailers for baled or loose RDF which will be transported from the site for onward treatment. 



The Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change has endorsed, subject to the receipt of planning permission:

(1)          the use of capital funding (£2.0m as set out in section 5 of the report) for the construction of the hardstanding on Site Ha, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham; and to

(2)          delegate authority to the Assistant Director (Environment and Public Protection) to secure the necessary works and other steps required to construct the HGV trailer park on site Ha; and to

(3)          delegate authority to the Director of Law and Assurance to negotiate and agree a development funding agreement to provide how Biffa will enter the Council’s land and build the hardstanding and how the Council will fund the construction.
