Energy, Minerals, and Waste

Tetra Tech Planning offers planning services to deliver the sustainable minerals, waste management, and energy facilities essential to meeting the UK’s needs for infrastructure, buildings, and goods.

Developing new minerals, waste, and energy proposals can cause contention, which is why our clients look for deep understanding of sector drivers, as well as experience in effective management of the planning process.

Tetra Tech Planning offers specialist minerals and waste teams, networked across the UK and experienced in managing difficult planning-related and technical issues often arising from projects in this sector. We provide a fully integrated service to enable smooth progression from concept to design, planning, environmental permitting, construction, ongoing management, expansion, and afteruse. We can also provide policy advice and technical input on development plans, planning applications, and Environmental Impact Assessments, drawing on the support of our environmental specialists in landscape, ecology, air quality, geotechnical, hydrology and hydrogeology, flood risk, and transport.

We engage constructively with the public and stakeholders to support proposals, including virtual consultations initiatives, to ensure proposals meet client aspirations and national requirements.

Our UK planning team regularly recommends planning strategies and options to multi-national companies, operators, property developers, and landowners on major infrastructure projects. We have also advised local authorities, Government, and funding partners on planning policies and strategies. Project examples include large and small-scale energy and waste facilities, mineral sites, wind farms, aggregate recycling facilities, biomass/RDF energy, anaerobic digestion and solar parks.
