Norfolk Minerals and Waste Local Plan: Preferred Options Consultation

Norfolk County Council is currently consulting on its Preferred Options for the Norfolk Minerals and Waste Local Plan (M&WLP). The Consultation will take place over a six-week period from 18 September to 30 October 2019 (inclusive) and comments have been invited.

The M&WLP includes a forecast of the quantities of waste that need to be planned for over the Plan period to 2036 and criteria-based policies to determine planning applications for waste management facilities.¬† The Preferred Options document does not allocate specific sites for waste management facilities however Atlas Works is again on the short list of “suitable sites ” with an increased estimated throughput of 300,000 tonnes of waste per annum. This proposal¬†does not include the tonnage relating to the existing Metal Recycling facility.

Due to the timescale the Parish Council is now forming its view and will inform each property in the parish of its response to the consultation.

Watch out for the leaflet which will be coming through your door in the near future which will give information on how you can get involved.
