What CXCS can do for you

A farmyard inspection is the integral starting point to our service. Storage facilities and pollutions risks will be closely examined by our experienced staff and we will give feedback along with advice on where to go if you do require help.

We do paperwork, but it doesn't stop there. Our staff are experienced with farmyards and know exactly what will be looked at during an inspection. As a matter of course we will prepare a 'Farm Yard Drainage Plan' for you. It’s an essential document and inspectors will ask to see one.

All silage, slurry and fuel oil must comply with the SSAFO regulations. Stacks of manure or silage if not covered will drain polluted material which must be kept out of ditches and drains. You can be prosecuted and fined up to £5,000 in a Magistrates Court, or get an unlimited fine in the Crown Court, if you don’t follow the rules and take care to avoid causing pollution.

The Environment Agency can 'serve a notice' to stop you using an unsuitable silage, slurry or agricultural fuel oil store until it’s improved or relocated. They’ll do this if they think there’s a significant risk of pollution - e.g if you’ve not allowed enough capacity to store slurry.

Most problems that do occur are inexpensive adjustments that would prove to be more than sufficient for any Inspector. If you have a farm yard, it will be inspected.
