Minerals and Waste Plan Annual Monitoring Report
Cambridgeshire County Council (in consultation with Peterborough City Council) has produced a monitoring report to assess progress made in the implementation of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Plan, which comprises a Core Strategy and a Site Specific Proposals Plan. This Plan which was produced jointly by the two authorities covers Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, and therefore the information that is provided addresses both geographical areas.
This Monitoring Report covers the period from July 2011, when the existing Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Core Strategy was adopted, to the end of 2016.
Information is provided on:
- Aggregate (sand and gravel, and limestone) reserves and sales
- Progress on mineral sites allocated in the Minerals and Waste Plan
- Mineral planning applications determined
- Waste arising and waste trends
- Waste management capacity
- Progress on waste management sites allocated in the Minerals and Waste Plan
- Waste management planning applications determined.
Minerals and Waste Development Scheme
Cambridgeshire County Council is the mineral and waste planning authority and it has a duty to prepare a minerals and waste local plan. Such plans set out the local planning policies by which planning applications for minerals and waste management development will be determined; and looks forward and plans for new minerals and waste management development to support planned growth, and new and existing communities.
A Minerals and Waste Development Scheme is required to set out what local plan(s) will be prepared, and to include the timetable for preparing them.
The County Council has resolved to prepare a new minerals and waste local plan, which will cover the period to 2036. When complete this will replace the adopted Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Core Strategy (Development Plan Document) July 2011, as well as the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Site Specific Proposals Plan (Development Plan Document) February 2012.
Like the existing plans, the new Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Local Plan will be jointly prepared with Peterborough City Council, and will cover both administrative areas.
