Peterborough City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council have begun to review their joint Minerals and Waste Development Plan. The current Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD) was adopted in 2011 and the Site Specific Proposals DPD was adopted in 2012. These two plans are being reviewed and merged together to form a single joint Minerals and Waste Local Plan for the two areas.


In August 2017 both councils updated their respective Local Development Schemes (LDS), which set out the timetable for the production of the new Minerals and Waste Local Plan. The LDSs can be found following the links below (the timetable is the same in both documents).

The councils also have published Statements of Community Involvement (SCIs). These documents set out how and when the council will consult with people and organisations, and how you can get involved in the plan making process.

If you would like to be kept informed of the progress of the new Minerals and Waste Local Plan, please send your contact details to the joint Minerals and Waste Team and we will add you to our consultation database:
