Adopted Waste Local Plan
The original Waste Local Plan was adopted in January 2002. It was partially replaced by the Waste Core Strategy adopted in December 2013 and both documents will now be replaced by a new joint Waste Local Plan.
Saved policies in the Waste Local Plan
Policies in the existing Waste Local Plan could only be saved beyond 27 September 2007 if directed by the Secretary of State. Following submissions by the County and City Councils the Secretary of State directed that all Waste Local Plan policies be saved until replaced by new adopted policies, with the following three exceptions:
- 1 - Hierarchy of Waste Management Options
- 2 - Planning Obligations
- 24 - Protected Species
The Adopted Waste Local Plan can be downloaded below in PDF format, either by chapter or as a complete document. Please note the complete document is a large file and may take a while to download.
