How have we done?
Our aim is to ensure that the site is operating as efficiently as possible and to be good neighbours to local residents.
In this section we report how many complaints we have received each month, whether directly reported to the site or reported via our telephone helpline (0800 048 2704). Whenever we receive a complaint we investigate the problem and take any necessary and appropriate remedial action.
We are pleased to report that we did not receive any complaints in January.
Veolia take maintenance of the site very seriously and we work hard to ensure that the landfill sites we operate work efficiently with the minimum of effect on the local environment and our neighbours. Each month we update you on the activities we have carried out on site. Here are details of some of the work that has been carried out on site:
- The landfilling operation continues in Cell 4 and it should be completed soon
- Landfill gas extraction wells have been installed in Cell 4
- The validation report for the construction of Cell 5A has been sent to the Environment Agency and we await their approval
- When approval has been received we will start landfilling in Cell 5A

Planning application to extend the life of the site
In our last update we reported that our planning application to extend the life of the site had been refused by Buckinghamshire County Council. We are still keen to ensure the site is restored appropriately so we have spent the last few months assessing our options to find a solution that is acceptable for our neighbours and the local authorities.
With that in mind we have submitted a new planning application. The new planning application sets out that we will complete the landfilling and restoration process by 2017. This is 3 years less than the plans submitted in our first application.
To find out more about the details of the planning application you can read our supporting statement here or download it from the link on the right hand side of the page. You can also view the site plans showing the proposed restoration process up to 2017.

Veolia Environmental Trust
The Veolia Environmental Trust was established in 1997 under the Landfill Communities Fund.The Trust uses landfill tax credits to support a wide range of community and environmental projects throughout the UK. This could include projects which aim to install or enhance play areas and skate parks, restore footpaths and green spaces, protect natural habitats, improve community halls and restore churches.
Projects that are supported by the Trust must be within five miles of a site operated by Veolia Environmental Services (UK) plc. They must also fall within one of five funding categories and meet certain additional criteria.
