New Waste Plan

The new Waste Plan identifies sites for new waste management facilities to meet the county's needs. Once adopted, it will provide the policy framework for determining planning applications for waste management facilities up to 2033.

Submission of the Waste Plan

The Waste Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on 29 March 2018.

Consultation on the Pre-Submission Draft, the final version of the Waste Plan, closed on 31 January 2018. The Plan has now been submitted, along with all the responses received and the supporting documents that have been prepared. The Waste Plan will be subject to a public examination with a planning inspector - see details below.

The Waste Plan and supporting documents are available to view below in the examination library. The statement of submission provides details of viewing submission documents at our offices.

You can also view the Waste Plan and the comments made by people and organisations on the consultation portal.

Examination and public hearings

Inspector Nicholas Palmer BA (Hons) BPI MRTPI has been appointed as the independent Inspector to conduct the examination into the soundness of the Waste Plan. Public hearings will be held from Tuesday 26 June to Thursday 28 June 2018. Full details can be viewed on the notice of independent examination.

The Inspector has issued the matters and issues that will form the basis for discussion during the hearing sessions. A guidance note from the inspectors is available.

A Draft Programme for the forthcoming hearings has been published. At the moment all the Matter, Issues & Questions initially asked by the Inspector are still listed.  Many of these will be removed when the Inspector has assessed the responses contained in the hearing statements. Only extant questions will remain in the programme which may change and shorten accordingly.

Please keep an eye on this website for updates, the latest programmes and any other information.  

Examination library

A number of supporting documents were published alongside the Waste Plan Pre-Submission Draft - please see below. These include documents detailing how the Plan has been prepared and evidence that underpins the Plan. For each site that we are proposing to allocate for the development of waste management facilities, a site assessment is available.
