The following Press release comes from West Sussex County Council:
In partnership, West Sussex County Council and the South Downs National Park Authority have prepared a Waste Local Plan which includes strategic waste site allocations.
The Authorities received the Planning Inspector’s report on 17 February 2014, and the Waste Local Plan has been found sound. Subsequently, the Report and modifications recommended by the Planning Inspector were considered by the full authority meetings of both West Sussex County Council and South Downs National Park Authority. Both Authorities approved adoption of the Waste Local Plan with effect from 11 April 2014.
The adopted Plan is now formally part of the statutory Development Plan for West Sussex and will be the basis for all planning decisions relating to waste development in the Plan Area.
If you would like to view the adopted Waste Local Plan, the Adoption Statement, and the Sustainability Appraisal, they are available on our website, westsussex.gov.uk/mwdf, and are available for inspection now at the main deposit point locations, details of which are set out in the Adoption Statement.
