Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP):
  • Details the process for identifying, monitoring and reviewing the environmental impacts throughout the course of the decommissioning project.
  • Monitors compliance with regulatory requirements and with Roche’s proprietary policies and objectives for all remediation projects.
Traffic Management Plan (TMP):
  • Outlines the required mitigation and monitoring measures that will be taken to minimise the effect of additional traffic flows on the local road network including:
