The Council adopted the Natural Resources and Waste Local Plan on 16th January 2013 with modifications as recommended by the Inspector following examination pursuant to Section 23 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

The Natural Resources and Waste Development Plan Document (Local Plan) is part of the Local Development Framework. 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.

The Plan includes a reference to the Council’s Minimum Development Control Standards for Flood Risk. These have been updated to take account of the Environment Agency update to Climate Change Allowances February 2016 and is also available from the Documents section below.
