Consultation on Surrey County Council Minerals & Waste Local Plan (MWLP)
Surrey County Council Minerals & Waste Local Plan (MWLP)
The MWLP will be underpinned by a positive 15-year vision and seek to deliver sustainable minerals and waste management that provides for a steady and adequate supply of minerals and sufficient capacity to manage Surrey’s waste over that period. It will also provide for development that mitigates against and helps Surrey adapt to climate change, and combats biodiversity loss. It will reflect the growing overlap between minerals development and waste management development; and safeguard the County’s valuable mineral resources and waste management facilities from other development.
The Issues and Options public consultation is the first formal part of the plan-making process relating to the MWLP. It sets out various issues and challenges facing future minerals and waste management development in the County and proposes several planning policy options to address those issues and challenges. In this context the consultation material includes a proposed vision, spatial strategy, and strategic objectives for future minerals and waste management development in Surrey; and is underpinned by a Strategic Environmental Assessment and Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report.
The consultation document and associated papers are available on the County’s website – https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/land-planning-and-development/minerals-and-waste/local-plan
