The Natural Resources and Waste Development Plan Document 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 actions which will help us use our natural resources in a more efficient way.
It was adopted by the council on 16 January 2013 with modifications as recommended by the Inspector following examination of the plan.
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 in February 2016.
