Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Landfill Allowances Scheme (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2004 (“the principal Regulations”) by reducing the level of penalty to which a district council is liable under section 9(2) of the Waste and Emissions Trading Act 2003 from £200 multiplied by the excess landfill for that district council to £150 multiplied by the excess landfill by that district council.

These Regulations also amend the principal Regulations for the purposes of clarifying or correcting existing references.
