Event description

The seminar discusses the processes and challenges for good management of earthworks and remediation on development sites, with presentations from different perspectives of consultant, contractor and environmental lawyer.

After an introduction from Danny Hope, regional director at Hydrock, the first presentation will look at the legislative background of landfill tax and unauthorised sites. Keith Davidson, solicitor and environmental law expert at ELM Law and Mills and Reeves will review the implications of the 2018 HMRC landfill tax rule extensions.

The second presentation will be from Danny Hope, who will explain what material management plans are and discuss when and why they are needed, using case studies from the north west.

The final presentation will give the contractor’s view. Mark Field, project director at Vertase FLI will focus on waste and material reuse. Using case studies, he will explain how the CL:AIRE definition of Waste: Development Industry Code of Practice is being applied (and abused), as well as how it should be used to provide a good practice framework for material management.

The seminar will take place in room SLG12, Samuel Alexander Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PL.
