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!
