Surplus excavated material

Excavated material becomes surplus if:

Sustainable placement is the on-site placement for disposal of surplus excavated material to avoid causing environmental effects (e.g. transport) that would otherwise be associated with the off-site disposal of that material. β€˜On-site’ in this context means within the land required for the purposes of the development and β€˜off-site’ means external land
(or landfill site) which is not specifically required for the purposes of the development.

A sustainable placement area is an area used for sustainable placement.
