Liaison Panels

It has been a long established practice of Hampshire County Council to support the creation of local Site Liaison Panels for major or controversial minerals or waste sites. These provide a forum for discussing operational issues between the operator, the County Council (as Planning Authority), interested parties and representatives of the local community.

The specific makeup of Liaison Panels varies according to the local situation, but potential members of a Panel might include the operator of the relevant facility, the Environment Agency, a representative of the District Council and the Parish Council, a Residents Association representative and a representative or representatives of residents directly affected by he development.

These Liaison Panels are usually administered by the site operator. If you have any comments for an active site Liaison Panel, please contact your local parish or county councillor.
