The waste and minerals planning strategy for East Sussex will be set out in a set of documents called the Waste and Minerals Development Framework (WMDF).
Following the changes in planning legislation under the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act, new documents are being prepared and some existing plans are being 'saved'. These, along with the timetable for their preparation are set out in the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme.
Current waste and minerals plans
Our Waste and Minerals Local Plans remain part of our Development Plan for the ‘saved' period. They will gradually be replaced by Development Plan Documents (DPDs) jointly prepared by East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council.
The current Waste Local Plan will be replaced by:
- the Waste and Minerals Plan – for answers to your questions about the Waste and Minerals Development Framework – Preferred Strategy, see: What will we do with waste in East Sussex?
- a Waste Sites Development Plan Document, which will set out details of sites suitable for waste management
The current Minerals Local Plan will be replaced by:
- the Waste and Minerals Plan
- a Minerals Sites Development Plan Document which will include details of sites for minerals extraction and processing
- a Proposals Map showing area and site-specific policies.
