Minerals and Waste Plan Annual Monitoring Report
Cambridgeshire County Council is required to produce an Annual Monitoring Report to assess the effectiveness of its Minerals and Waste Plan.
The report includes an assessment of:
- progress towards meeting the targets or milestones in local development documents, or, where they are or not on track and why
- the impact the policies are having on national, regional and local targets and any other targets
- whether the policies need adjusting or replacing because they are not working as it was intended or are not achieving sustainable development objectives
- if policies or proposals do need changing, suggested actions to achieve this
Whenever a revision to the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (MWDS) is required - as a result of annual monitoring or other factors - the council will put this into effect and make the revised MWDS available for inspection and republish it. A copy will also be provided to all district councils within Cambridgeshire.
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.
