On 19 July 2017 we published a news item regarding the Environment Agency's (EA) announcement that they would be decommissioning their interactive mapping services from Thursday 27 July and that from this date the EA's Landfill Site search would no longer be available.
The EA have announced today (27 July 2017) that the planned closure of the 'What's in your Backyard', the EA's service which contains the mapping services including the Landfill Site search, has been postponed. The Landfill Site search will therefore continue to be available at the existing link until notified otherwise.
We are aware that the Landfill Site search facility is an important tool for those operating in the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) sector. We will continue to monitor the site and keep in contact with the EA to update the sector on any further information as it becomes available.
