The Surrey Waste Local Plan 2019-2033
The Surrey Waste Local Plan sets out how and where different types of waste will be managed in Surrey in the future. It sets out the planning policy framework for the development of waste management facilities and is used in determining planning applications. The current plan has been in place since 2008 and needs to be updated. We have produced a list of frequently asked questions (PDF).
During preparation of the new Plan, we gathered views from residents, businesses and stakeholders in the Issues and Options Consultation, the Regulation 18 Draft Plan Consultation and the Regulation 19 Period for Representations. This is in accordance with the adopted Statement of Community Involvement and the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. The council's 'Submission Surrey Local Plan' was agreed by Cabinet on Tuesday 18 December 2018.
