Waste - our Local Plan

×

The Waste Development Plan Document provides the detailed policy framework for assessing planning applications for waste related developments and also allocates sites for a range of new waste management facilities to meet our recycling and recovery targets in the period to 2026. It sets out how we will manage and treat waste from industrial and business sources as well as from our homes to meet our recycling and recovery targets.

The document aims to:

  • Reduce or minimise the amount of waste we produce

  • Recycle as much as possible rather than send waste to landfill sites in line with national and regional policy

  • Re-use waste as a resource, wherever possible

It has been prepared within the context of national, regional and local policy. The Core Strategy is the overarching document in the Local Plan and sets out the overall planning strategy for sustainable waste management in the district.

Preparing the document has included wide ranging consultation and engagement with the public and interested parties, details and documents of the main stages are available below.

A senior government planning inspector found the document sound after examining it during 2009.

The Council adopted the Waste document on 9 December 2009

The document now forms part of the Local Plan, the statutory development plan for Wakefield District, and replaces policies in the Unitary Development Plan.

The document, the Planning Inspector's report and information relating to the adoption of the document are available below.
