UKWIN has published a guide to site-specific non-waste planning arguments. This document is the first document in the UKWIN Campaign Guide series, available from

Whilst UKWIN typically focuses on the broader waste arguments against incineration, it is often the site-specific non-waste arguments that succeed in preventing individual planning applications from being granted planning permission.

These non-waste arguments relate to the impacts of a proposal on the area in which it would be located, and how a proposal therefore goes against local/regional/national planning policy.

The guide covers the following topics:

  • PPS10 Annex E Location al Criteria
  • Protection of water resources and risk of flooding
  • Land instability and subsidence
  • Visual intrusion and related amenity arguments
  • Nature conservation and wildlife protection
  • Historic environment and built heritage
  • Traffic, access and air quality
  • Potential land use conflict and other designations
  • Prematurity
  • EIR request e-mail templates
