Waste planning – our three page guide

Waste planning authorities (WPAs) have a statutory duty to prepare a Waste Local Plan in line with Article 28 of the Waste Framework Directive (2008).

The Waste Local Plan should identify sufficient waste management opportunities to meet the needs of an area, with the aims of driving waste management up the waste hierarchy, and ensuring suitable sites and facilities are located to enable waste management to be provided for a specific local area.

In turn, developers and operators have a role to play in meeting Local Plan aims and aspirations, and in gaining planning consent for new projects, be they residential, commercial or waste management related.
