Minerals & Waste Planning Policy
Draft Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan
The 17 December 2012 saw the conclusion of the combined consultation on the proposed changes to the Plan and the Department for Communities and Local Government’s recently published document ‘Guidance on the Managed Aggregate Supply System’, October 2012. This followed the first stage of public hearings in June 2012. The outcome of that consultation resulted in 134 people and organisations sending independent comments on the proposed changes to the Plan.
A second stage of public hearings took place on 13 and 14 March 2013 at the County Council’s offices in Winchester. In preparation the Inspector compiled a paper on the Issues and Questions that was discussed. This Issues and Questions paper also indicates those named parties invited to attend the resumed hearings.
The Hampshire Authorities are now waiting to receive the Inspectors Report with the intention that the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan will be adopted Autumn 2013.
A New Approach
Our new approach is to develop a single Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan - this will save time and money and builds on our adopted Core Strategy (2007). With the quashing of some of the policies wthin the Core Strategy, there is an opportunity to update and review the plan in its entireity.
Our current timetable for the new approach is detailed within our Development Scheme
Our work on the adopted Core Strategy (2007) and the background work on Minerals and Waste can be viewed by following the (Current Policy) link above.
