Natural Resources and Waste Development Plan Document - publication draft

The Natural Resources and Waste Development Plan Document is part of the Local Development Framework (LDF).  The plan sets out where land is needed to enable us to manage resources, like minerals, energy, waste and water, over the next 15 years and identifies specific actions which will help us use our natural resources in a more efficient way.

Previous consultations

The Issues and Options consultation was undertaken between May - June 2008. The comments received at this early stage were used to inform and help focus the Policy Position stage (and related material) which underwent formal consultation in January – March 2010.

Based on the Policy Position consultation, the draft publication document was produced along with related material. This was the final stage of public consultation prior to the formal submission for independent examination. An inspector examined the DPD against three tests of soundness which required it to be:
 Justified
 Effective
 Consistent with national policy.

More information about soundness can be found in the guidance from the Planning Inspectorate entitled Local Development Frameworks, Development Plan Documents: Soundness Guidance, available from

A number of consultation documents and supporting material was made available and can be found via the document area on the left of this page. Please click on 'documents' heading for the menu to expand.
