Short description: EXTRACT: Paragraph 19 permits 50,000 tonnes of the wastes specified in the table in paragraph 19 legislation to be stored for up to six months provided the wastes are suitable for the uses described in Paragraph (6) of the exemption. It allows these specified wastes to be used for the purposes described in 19 (6), if: they are suitable for that use, and the work has planning consent where this is required. The exemption limits the depths of waste to those which have been: specified in the cross sectional plan (where this is required), and accepted by us as part of our assessment. Only use the amount required to complete the job - any more would be a disposal operation. Paragraph 19 also permits 50,000 tonnes of waste road planings and roadbase which is intended for those uses described in Paragraph (6) to be stored for up to six months, even if the work is not to be carried out at the place where it is to be stored.
