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 in place, 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 Plan.
This document should be used in conjunction with the Nottinghamshire Waste Local Plan Adopted January 2002 which is still current (see related documents).
