The Surrey Waste Local Plan 2018-2033

Period of representations (Regulation 19)

The Submission Plan was agreed by Cabinet on Tuesday 18 December 2018. We are now publishing the Submission Plan for a period of six weeks to gather representations prior to submission of the plan to the Secretary of State, in accordance with the adopted Statement of Community Involvement and Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

We are publishing this Submission Plan from 14 January 2019 to 24 February 2019 to allow comments to be made on the plan. These representations will then be forwarded to the Secretary of State when the plan is submitted in April. A public examination before an independent inspector will follow in summer 2019.

Representations can be made via the online survey on Surrey Says.

If you are having difficulty accessing the online survey you may also submit a representation by filling out this Regulation 19 Representation form (PDF) and sending it to the email address or postal address below.

Strategic Environmental Assessment and Sustainability Appraisal

We have prepared an Environmental and Sustainability Report which incorporates a Strategic Environmental Assessment and a Sustainability Appraisal. The report assesses the likely social, economic and environmental effects of the plan, as well as highlighting the key environmental effects of the proposals and reasonable alternative options.

The report comprises:

Habitats Regulations Assessment

Interim Position Statement - 14 January 2019

A Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) of the Submission version of the Surrey Waste Local (SWLP) is currently being prepared and will be available to view from 1 February 2019.

A draft version of the HRA (PDF) was prepared to inform the SWLP and was published in July 2018, along with Appendix A (PDF), Appendix B (PDF), and Appendix C (PDF). That draft version considered the six sites that are allocated in the Submission SWLP under Policy 11.

The latest version will take account of the sites allocated under Policy 11 in the Submission SWLP and the 'Industrial Land Areas of Search' identified under Policy 10 in the Submission SWLP.

Natural England has previously reviewed the approach to the HRA and has indicated that it is satisfied with the methodology. Natural England will be consulted on the HRA of the Submission SWLP.

Sites proposed for allocation in the Submission Surrey Waste Local Plan have undergone detailed site assessment work, the assessments undertaken were:

  • Air Quality Impact Assessment (April 2018)

  • Landscape and Visual Options Study: Lambs Business Park (October 2018)

Preparing the new Surrey Waste Local Plan

The preparation of the Surrey Waste Local Plan has followed a number of stages.

We have published a Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (PDF) which sets out the milestones in preparing the plan. This was agreed by cabinet on Tuesday 18 December 2018.

Between 2 September and 25 November 2016 we consulted on the Issues and options for the Surrey Waste Local Plan.

Between 1 November 2017 and 7 February 2018 we consulted on the Draft Surrey Waste Local Plan.

We are now publishing the Submission Surrey Waste Local Plan for a period of representations in line with Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.
