Draft Surrey Waste Local Plan Consultation (Regulation 18)

Draft Plan Consultation (Regulation 18)

The consultation on the Draft Surrey Waste Local Plan ran from 1 November 2017 to 7 February 2018.

Through the draft plan consultation we sought your views on the content of the draft spatial strategy, draft policies and the proposed sites, as well as the revised vision and strategic objectives. We also accepted nominations for additional sites for consideration.

The documents that we consulted on during the Draft Plan Consultation are available to download below.

We have produced a Draft Plan Consultation Summary Report (PDF), which summarises the comments made during the consultation on the draft plan and how these have shaped the submission version of the plan.

Before the final version of the waste local plan can be adopted by the county council it will need to be judged as 'sound' by an independent planning inspector. A local plan is considered sound if it is:

  1. Positively prepared - does the plan meet the need for new waste management facilities to manage Surrey's waste?
  2. Justified - has the plan been prepared using reasonable evidence?
  3. Effective - is the plan deliverable, flexible and able to be monitored?
  4. Consistent - is the plan consistent with national and other local planning policies?

A list of frequently asked questions can be found on our Surrey Waste Plan page.

Strategic Environmental Assessment and Sustainability Appraisal

We have prepared a draft Environmental and Sustainability Report which incorporates a Strategic Environmental Assessment and Sustainability Appraisal/ The report assess 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 draft report and appendices are available to download below.
