Regulatory Position Statement on Use of Manufactured Topsoil
The EA have released an updated RPS on the Use of Manufactured Topsoil which sets out the conditions that you must meet to use up to 1000 tonnes of manufactured without an Environmental Permit.
Full details can be found here. The topsoil must be used to establish a vegetative layer. Certified Compost (i.e. PAS100 and Quality Protocol compliant compost) is on the list of acceptable inputs to the manufactured topsoil. The place where the soil is used must not currently be or intended to be used for agriculture.
