approximately 130 metres west of the compound location. The compound will consist of a site office,

storage container, toilet, generator, storage areas, topsoil bund and car parking for site staff; this will all

be enclosed by security fencing. This planning application is being submitted as the compound is not

within land adjoining the proposed works, therefore not considered to be Permitted Development under
