Since 2005, planning policy had been prepared for inclusion in a 'folder' or collection of planning documents known as The Hampshire Minerals & Waste Development Framework. This set of documents included important 'Plans' for the future as well as a set of supporting documents.
The first Plan adopted was the Hampshire Minerals & Waste Core Strategy (2007) which contains policies to guide minerals and waste development up to 2020. This Plan, along with two other site allocation Plans, were to replace the Minerals & Waste Local Plan (1998) however the replacement site allocation Plans were not completed as the development of a new Plan (the Hampshire Minerals & Waste Plan) to replace all three Plans was begun in 2010.
The Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton Minerals and Waste Local Plan was adopted in December 1998. This replaced the Hampshire Minerals Local Plan (adopted in 1987). It contains detailed policies for the control of minerals and waste development and identifies preferred sites to provide for the minerals and waste development requirements in Hampshire Portsmouth and Southampton to the year 2001.
Although the Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton Minerals and Waste Local Plan has been mostly superseded by the Core Strategy as of June/July 2007, there are still some site specific policies that have been retained until the Hampshire Minerals & Waste Plan is adopted.
