Land Use Planning Pre-application Advice
HSE as a statutory consultee, provides land use planning advice
to planning authorities on proposed developments on sites which lie
near to a major hazard site or a major accident hazard pipeline.
The details outlined below are part of the new arrangements
developed for delivering HSE's contribution to the planning system
- further explanation of these changes can be found on HSE's website.

HSE's land use planning policy on such developments, and depending

If you are considering developing a site which lies close to a
major hazard, you can be provided with information about the
consultation distances and zones which apply, so that you can tell
if HSE would be consulted over a planning application. If you are
interested in developing a site which does lie within a
consultation distance and you would like more information as to
what advice HSE would provide on your proposals, this can be
provided as a charged service.
