Draft Waste and Minerals Policies Consultation

DRAFT EAST SUSSEX, SOUTH DOWNS AND BRIGHTON & HOVE WASTE AND MINERALS LOCAL PLAN REVISED POLICIES DOCUMENT – CONSULTATION: 11th MAY 2020 TO 3RD AUGUST 2020

East Sussex County Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and the South Downs National Park Authority are proposing changes to their adopted Waste and Minerals Local Plan (WMLP). These changes are set out in the draft Waste and Minerals Local Plan Revised Policies Document, which has been published for consultation.

The three Authorities have carefully considered whether to proceed with the consultation given the current emergency measures put in place by the Government. In light of this, the Authorities have decided to proceed with a consultation over an extended period of 12 weeks, which may further be extended if required. We are therefore seeking representations from all stakeholders and members of the public on the contents of the Draft Revised Policies of the Waste and Minerals Local Plan. Comments should be made between 11 May and 3 August 2020.

The consultation draft plan and a full set of supporting documentation can be found at our online consultation portal http://consult.eastsussex.gov.uk. If you are unable to view the documentation online, please contact us.
