What is the Local Waste Plan?

The Local Waste Plan will provide waste planning policies for Hull and the East Riding. It will replace the existing Joint Waste Local Plant that was adopted in November 2004.

The Government issued a Direction which lists those policies from the adopted Local Plans that are ‘saved’ beyond 27 September 2007. Any policies not listed in the Direction (the letter below) have now expired.

The new Local Waste Plan will:

  • allocate specific sites for waste management use;
  • provide policies against which waste management proposals on non-allocated sites will be judged;
  • set out the context for requiring a site waste management plan in new developments;
  • protect sensitive environments from harmful waste management development.

What is the timescale for completing the Local Waste Plan?

Certain stages have already been undertaken:

  • Issues and Options – Complete 2008

  • Second Issues and Options - February - March 2012.

  • Preferred Approach - Summer 2024

What is the latest stage in preparing the Local Waste Plan?

Work on developing the evidence base of current sites and projected need for the Preferred Approach is currently underway.

Can I view previous consultations for the Local Waste Plan?

Yes. A second Issues and Options consultation paper was published in Spring 2012. An initial consultation was carried out in 2008, but due to a number of factors, work on the Local Waste Plan was suspended. Since then there have been a number of changes, including significantly improved municipal recycling rates and an overall fall in waste arisings, and it was appropriate to re-consult on Issues and Options.
