Following the Initial Consultation in 2018, we have considered the feedback received and reviewed the vision, objectives, draft policies, explanatory text and assessments of proposed mineral sites for the Preferred Options consultation.
You are invited to read the following document and comment on the contents. It would be helpful to the process if comments made can be backed up by supporting information where possible, as the Minerals and Waste Local Plan Review will be subject to Examination in Public by a Planning Inspector appointed on behalf of the Secretary of State.
We are seeking comments on:
- the vision
- the strategic objectives for waste management and for minerals development
- the policies for waste management facilities and for minerals development
- the proposed mineral extraction sites and draft policies for specific site allocations
- the accompanying draft Sustainability Appraisal Report
- the draft Habitats Regulations Assessment
