Minerals and waste development scheme

The council's programme for the preparation of its minerals and waste development plans.

Update to the Local Development Scheme - May 2016

At its cabinet meeting on 25 May 2016 Dorset County Council agreed revised milestones for the Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole Minerals and Waste Development Scheme 2015-17. The plans covered in this scheme will be produced in accordance with the milestones set out in the revised timetable (pdf, 34kb) (opens in a new window). This will be kept under review and any future revisions will appear on this page.

2014 Local Development Scheme

The 2014 version of the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (pdf, 371kb) (opens in a new window) was approved by Dorset County Council on 17 December 2014 and was effective from 1 January 2015. It identifies the minerals and waste plans which are to be prepared for the administrative areas of Dorset County Council and the two unitary authorities of Bournemouth Borough Council and Borough of Poole and sets out the timetable for their preparation.

The development scheme has two main roles:

  • it provides the first point of reference for local communities and stakeholders to find out about the council's timetable for the preparation of minerals and waste development documents over a three-year period and beyond

  • it establishes a commitment to the county council's priorities and the work programme for minerals and waste development documents in partnership with Communities and Local Government and the Planning Inspectorate (PINS)

The development scheme is kept under review to assess progress in meeting its key milestones and the need for additional documents. Any formal amendments to the scheme will be published on this site.

This version of the development scheme covers the period 2015-2017 and it supersedes the previous (2013-2016) version.
