Tipping of soils on agricultural land in River Sence floodplain refused

Leicestershire County Council has refused a retrospective application for the deposition of waste on the grounds that the development would result in harm from flood risk and because the impact on ecology had not been assessed. Officers also gained authorisation to serve an enforcement notice requiring the removal of the soils.
