Remember Buncefield?

OK its on a different scale but are we going to learn from our mistakes or not?
Recommendations made on land use planning and the control of societal risk around major hazard sites, produced by the Buncefield Major Incident Investigation Board after the catastrophic fire at the Buncefield Oil Storage depot in 2005. This report clearly describes the need for sensible planning approaches to ensure safety and protection around major hazard sites as well as learning from the mistakes which contributed to this major incident in order to protect those who live near to or occupy surrounding areas. This includes limiting operations or restricting further expansion, where necessary.
Link to the report
There is a growing opinion that should this application be successful then Par Petroleum will then apply to substantially increase its capacity and therefore the risk!
