Is a waste licence required for removing the spoil?


Can't imagine such, being that the spoil is being removed and spread for Agricultural purposes.


It's got to be transported. I've not checked the regs fully, but I think you need one just to transport the stuff.

I can see what you mean but in this case the OP is not paying for the removal of 'waste'. He is only paying for time/labour and fuel, and the Farmer is gaining an 'asset' to be used in the furtherance of his Trade/Profession.

Put it another way. Let's assume I fell a tree in my garden. What remains [to me] is 'waste'. However, if a friend with a log burner then offered, "Can I cut it up and take it away for my fire?" Surely it then ceases to be 'waste' and becomes firewood?

I can't find a definition for 'waste' but would assume something akin to 'to landfill or to premises for processing.........'

I can't envisage old Farmer Giles, trundling the lanes between his yard (or even a neighbour's yard) and his fields, pulling a 'slurry spreader', needing a Waste Carrier's Licence. :dunno:

I would think that as long as you dont officially pay him to take it away then it will be fine. It's just the same as people picking up spare topsoil or hardcore from extension builds etc.

A massive thanks to all of you helping me so far, I'm amazed so many of you reply and give great advice so quickly, I thank you all here's a over view picture, he's told me to dig from the path towards the road ensuring no road blockages. People tell me to dig up the path and go further back toward the house but I'm not too keen on that. Looking at the picture I will only be taking out the top left quarter for the drive hopefully the car will fit. Thank you peeps for your advice and help really appreciate it.Image

Nice size you have available. Personally I think front gardens are a waste of space, I would dig out as much as possible and give myself plenty of room for me and any visitors to park and turn vehicles.

Thanks Rorschach, on the deeds that land is ours but the paths are shared access for my neighbours! The path going to the left doesn't get used ever as they have now got their own access, but to the right the chap uses it to get in and out as it's his only main access. I'll take a few more snaps now

Well as long as access is retained you could still dig out that side. If you have a chat with your neighbour he may actually prefer a gentle slope rather than steps. You could even offer to rent him a parking space.

It would be a good idea to throw a tape measure at it before you do all the work.
