The Waste Core
Strategy will set out our overall approach to future waste
management in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham. Key issues will
include estimates of how much waste capacity needs to be provided to meet
expected demand over the next 20 years, what types of sites are suitable and
where in broad terms new or extended waste management sites should be located.
Once the Core Strategy is adopted, it will be accompanied by a
set of development management policies
and a site specific document.
All of these documents will be prepared jointly by the County
Council and Nottingham City Council. Each document must go through a series of
informal and formal public consultation stages and finally an independent
examination before it can be adopted by the County and City Councils. Once
adopted, these documents will replace the relevant parts of the Waste Local
Following several stages of informal consultation, a draft
version of the Waste Core Strategy, called the Proposed Submission Document,
was published in March 2012 for formal representations. Having considered all
of the representations received, and also in response to Government changes to
national planning policy, the Councils consulted on a number of changes
to the strategy. These were
published as a separate Schedule of Proposed Changes in October 2012.
The Waste Core Strategy and the Schedule of Proposed
Changes were submitted to Government on 14
January 2013, along with all of the representations, for independent
examination by a planning inspector. All
of the information and documents relating to the examination can be found on
our separate Waste Core Strategy Examination page, including how
to contact the Programme Officer and details of the previous consultation
