Buckinghamshire County Council Waste PFI
RPS acted as Technical & Planning adviser to support the Buckinghamshire Waste procurement project. The contract included the development of an Energy from Waste Facility and two Waste Transfer Stations.
During the procurement process, RPS acted for the Authority providing Planning and Environmental support and evaluating bidders' submissions both in terms of technical content and planning delivery. We also undertook site investigation work on one of the transfer station sites to assess ground contamination and propose mitigation to enable development. Once the Preferred Bidder had been appointed we then reviewed the planning and permit applications, a role which is continuing through discharge of conditions.
Our architects are also now working on the detailed design of the Energy from Waste facility.
