New Waste Local Plan

Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham City Council are working together to prepare a new Waste Local Plan which will replace the previous Waste Local Plan (2002) and the Waste Core Strategy (2013).

The new Waste Local Plan will provide the future planning strategy for waste management in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham until 2038 and will aim to provide sufficient capacity to meet future needs. It will also provide key policies against which future waste development will be assessed.

To help shape the plan, we will be seeking the views of local people, businesses and organisations on the key issues that the plan will need to focus on. The first stage of the review will be a consultation on an Issues and Options document which will run from 27 February until 7 May 2020.

Consultation on Issues and Options

The consultation is open to everyone and your comments will help to inform future stages of the plan. The Councils are seeking views on issues such as the need for different types of waste facilities, suitable locations, and the environmental and other standards that all new waste management proposals should comply with.

To help you comment there are specific consultation questions included throughout the document, but please feel free to comment on anything else you think is relevant at this stage.

View and comment on the Issues and Options for the Waste Local Plan online using our interactive consultation system.

Call for sites

This consultation is also accompanied by a ‘Call for Sites’ to give an opportunity for agents, landowners and developers to submit land which they believe could be developed to meet future demand for waste management facilities. This will help to ensure that there is sufficient land available to meet our waste needs during the Plan period.

Further information and updates on the Issues and Options consultation and the progress of the new Waste Local Plan will be included on this page as and when it becomes available.
