Scrap Metal Policy Consultation

This consultation closes on 26 April, 2024.

We're proposing to adopt a policy in relation to our licensing responsibilities under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013.

The provision of a policy aims to provide residents, applicants and other agencies with a benchmark of the our expectations and will assist them in understanding statutory requirements.

We've prepared a draft policy (PDF 292KB) and now wish to carry out a consultation with relevant parties and the general public.

We're keen to receive comments on the draft document, which will be considered before the finalised policy is adopted.
