Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Environment Agency adopts new decision-making tool as a best practice guide

A decision-making tool for forecourt companies wanting to develop or refurbish sites has been adopted by the Environment Agency (EA) as a best practice guide.

Last year Cambridge-based geo-environmental consultants EPS issued the decision-making tool, which helps to assess different fuel infrastructure requirements at new or refurbished petrol filling stations, depending on the environmental sensitivity of the location.

Known as the Fuel Feasibility Decision Matrix, it was intended as a high-level guide at feasibility stage to help establish the likely outcome and associated costs for the development.

The matrix was initially developed as an internal document to aid discussions in support of client projects, but following further conversations with and comments by contacts in the fuel retail industry as well as key personnel at the EA, EPS is now pleased to announce that the EA has recently adopted the matrix internally as a best practice guide.
