Short description: You usually need a permit if you want to use manufactured topsoil because it is made from waste. However, if you follow the conditions of this regulatory position statement (RPS), you do not need to apply for an environmental permit to use up to 1,000 tonnes of manufactured topsoil. If you cannot comply with the conditions in this RPS but you want to use manufactured topsoil, you need to apply for an environmental permit.
