Neal Soil Suppliers Ltd and another v Natural Resources Wales (No 2)

Environment – Protection. In a case relating to the defendants alleged non-compliance with an enforcement notice contrary to reg 36 of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010, it was held, among other things, that the commencement of a waste recovery process was sufficient to comply with the terms of recovery in the environmental permit and enforcement notice. The Court of Appeal, Criminal division, ruled accordingly, but declined to make a ruling that the case for the prosecution disclosed no offence, for the reason that there might be disputed issues of fact.
