2013 – Presenting Hydro and Enviro Advice, Asbestos Landfill

Advising Stowey Sutton Action Group (SSAG)


At Intégrale, we take our professional responsibility and knowledge very seriously……. to the extent that we are willing to work…gratis…. for local action groups with valid concerns.

This quarry, located adjacent to Chew Valley Lake, has been a site of contention for six years, when permission was granted for asbestos disposal. Residents, supported by Intégrale, gained national attention through a series of high-profile appeals.

In 2013, the Planning Inspector ruled that the quarry could not be used as landfill for stable non-reactive hazardous waste; it posed a risk to residents and the reservoir. SSAG have monitored the quarry since and raised suspicions about the waste arriving. In late 2016, the Environment Agency suspended the permit for even controlled waste disposal .
