Minerals and waste performance monitoring

Waste Capacity Need Assessment 2023

A Waste Capacity Need Assessment (WCNA) was commissioned by Surrey County Council and undertaken by BPP consulting. This WCNA was produced in November 2023 as part of the evidence base supporting the preparation of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan for Surrey.

The WCNA seeks to identify the need for additional waste management capacity in Surrey in the years to 2042, by assessing Surrey's future waste arisings and the contribution existing facilities make.

Local Aggregates Assessment

Mineral Planning Authorities are also required to produce a Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA) and to update it annually. This includes forecasts of the demand for aggregates, an analysis of all aggregate supply options and the rate of future provision for land-won primary aggregates in Surrey. The latest Local Aggregate Assessment (PDF) for Surrey was published in December 2023.

Authority Monitoring Report

The county council has a statutory duty to prepare a monitoring report on minerals and waste planning in Surrey.

The reports cover:

  • Progress on the minerals and waste development framework
  • A review of policy implementation and performance
  • Information on minerals resources, sales and the landbank
  • Information on waste arisings, management and capacity
  • General statistics on the number of planning applications received and decisions issued
  • A review of planning enforcement and site monitoring work
  • Progress on site restoration and environmental enhancement

The latest Authority Monitoring Report for Surrey has been published and covers the monitoring period April 2020 to March 2021.

South East Aggregate Monitoring Report

The South East Aggregates Monitoring Report includes data on primary aggregate sales, permissions and reserves from quarries and wharves and sales and planning permissions at rail depots, and fixed sites producing recycled and secondary aggregates. Data on marine dredged sand and gravel landed at wharves has also been supplied by the Crown Estate. The South East Aggregate Monitoring Reports can be found on Hampshire County Council's website.
