Minerals and waste planning policy
Plans and strategies that guide minerals and waste development in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole.
The timetable for the Draft Waste Plan and Draft Mineral Sites Plan will change due to the County Council elections which are being held in May 2017.
A report on the new timetable is available to view at Item 7 of the Joint Advisory Committee Agenda (opens in a new window).
Waste Planning: "Have your say" - new site options in Blandford and Purbeck
Following last year's consultation on the draft Waste Plan, three new sites have been put forward. Two are possible locations for a waste management centre in Blandford and one is a possible location for managing residual (black bag) waste near Wareham.
We are keen to receive your views on these new sites, and you can make comments on the proposals between 23 February and 05 April 2017 - The Draft Waste Plan pages provide further information.
The Draft Mineral Sites Plan is not going to consultation in Spring 2017, but work is continuing on selecting the sites which will be included in the Plan as 'allocated sites'.
