New Waste Plan

Waste Plan Pre-Submission Draft Front Cover_Dec2017

You can comment on the Waste Plan Pre-Submission Draft until 31 January 2018.

A new Waste Plan is being prepared to provide for Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole's waste management needs.

The new Waste Plan will identify 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. 

Waste Plan Pre-Submission Draft

We have published the Pre-Submission Draft, which is the final version of the Waste Plan. From 1 December 2017 to 31 January 2018, we are inviting people to comment on the Plan's legal compliance and 'soundness' - whether it is considered to have been positively prepared and whether it is considered to be: justified, effective and consistent with national policy.

The Plan will then be submitted to the Secretary of State and will be subject to a public examination with a planning inspector.

The Plan includes specific sites for the development of waste management facilities, as well as proposed policies for considering planning applications against.
