Surrey County Council is the Waste Planning Authority (WPA) for Surrey. The role of the WPA includes a statutory requirement to prepare a plan for the provision of waste management infrastructure which will support Surrey’s growth over the next 15 years.
The current Surrey Waste Plan (SWP) was adopted in 2008 and to replace this a new Surrey Waste Local Plan (SWLP) is being prepared. The new SWLP will go through several stages of public consultation. The first stage of public consultation was ‘Issues and Options’ held in September 2016.
Based on the responses received from the Issues and Options Consultation and evidence collected by the WPA a draft version of the new SWLP has been prepared. The WPA now seeks views on the Draft SWLP through a further round of public consultation.
It is proposed that the Draft Plan Consultation runs from 1 November 2017 to 5 February 2018. This is based on a 12 week consultation window with an additional two weeks to account for the Christmas period.
The Draft Plan Consultation will give statutory, non-statutory and public stakeholders a chance to have their say on the draft version before Cabinet takes a decision on the contents of the SWLP. The consultation will be supported by a non-technical summary and will be available online and in hardcopy at District and Borough offices.
The Leader of the Council agreed that the Council commences a Draft Plan Consultation on a new Surrey Waste Local Plan (SWLP) from 1 November 2017 for a period of 14 weeks.
