Draft Minerals & Waste Plan consultation

Decision Maker: Cabinet member infrastructure

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To approve a 6 week public consultation for the draft Minerals and Waste Local Plan.

The Minerals and Waste Local Plan (MWLP) is an element of the Herefordshire Local Plan.  It will align with the principles and strategic direction established in the Core Strategy, providing the council’s preferred strategy and planning policy framework for meeting the county’s minerals and waste management needs up to 2031 and beyond.



The draft Minerals and Waste Local Plan (appendices 1and 2) and its supporting documents (appendices 3 - 7) are approved for the purpose of public consultation.

Alternative options considered:

1.              To abandon preparation of updated minerals and waste policies and continue taking guidance from the saved UDP policies. This is not recommended because the document is a required element of the Local Development Scheme and, when adopted, will form part of the Herefordshire Local Plan.
