Twelve hazardous substance consents were issued in Wales between April 1993 and March 1994, Welsh office junior minister reported (WA, 7 Feb, no177).

The consents were issued under the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Act 1990 which came into force in June 1992. The act requires that the storage or use of certain substances on particular sites are consented to by the local council.

Substances can only be used or stored in significant amounts after the local council has assessed the risk to people in the neighbourhood.

Only five councils received applications compared to 26 in the previous year. Of the 12 consents issued 10 were new applications and 2 were carried forward from the previous year. These were both consents for sites where substances were already being stored or used before the act came into force.
