Outer Temple instructed in massive waste prosecution
Outer Temple Chambers has been instructed by the Environment Agency in an enforcement action taken against 3 companies, their directors and managers. The case is one of the most significant waste prosecutions ever brought.
On 3 October 2014 Tim appeared at the PCMH in the case before His Honour Judge Piers-Higgins sitting at Hereford Crown Court. The Judge was told that the regulator alleges the defendants saved at least £2m in landfill charges by depositing over 60,000 tonnes waste unlawfully in a quarry in Shropshire.
Two defendants admitted offences contrary to the Environmental Permitting Regulations. Their cases were adjourned for sentence. The case against the 3 corporate defendants and 3 other individuals was adjourned for trial following not guilty pleas.
