Pre- Submission Draft Waste Local Plan
Significant changes have taken place in the way people regard and manage the things that are no longer needed. Today waste is no longer something which is buried in the ground. It is a resource to be re-used, recycled and then recovered. The need to address climate change means we need to re-use and repair more and put an end to single use plastics. Increasingly waste is seen as a resource within a "circular" economy with re-use and recovery at its heart.
Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham City Council are preparing a new joint Waste Local Plan to provide the planning policy framework against which all proposals for new waste development will be assessed. We look forward to working closely with the waste and recycling sector and the communities of Nottinghamshire and Nottingham to deliver these aspirations and plan sustainably for waste needs in the future.
We carried out a consultation on our Draft Waste Local Plan between the 7th February and the 4th April 2022. We examined the responses and where appropriate we have used these to inform the preparation of our Pre-submission Draft Local Plan prior to it being submitted for examination.
It is anticipated the document will be available for comments on its soundness for examination between thedates of 30th August and 11th October 2023. We encourage you to respond online to this consultation at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/waste. Alternatively, if you are unable to respond online you can email us at the addresses shown below. We look forward to your response.
