Essex & Southend Waste Local Plan

Replacement Waste Local Plan - Submission

Replacement Waste Local Plan – Proposed Modifications Consultation

The Councils have received the final report from the Inspector, Mrs Kath Ellison, who has carried out the independent examination of the Waste Local Plan. She issued the report following the examination hearing sessions that were held in September and October 2016 and after considering the representations that were made on the council’s proposed modifications to the plan. It is available below. The Inspector recommends main modifications to the Plan, and finds that with these modifications the Plan satisfies the legal requirements and meets the criteria for soundness. The Inspector confirms that the duty to co-operate has been met in the preparation of the Plan and the requirements for sustainability appraisal.

Inspector’s Final Report, June 2017 

The Councils can now proceed to adoption of the Waste Local Plan. Following consideration by Cabinet on the 20th June, the full Council will consider the Plan at the meeting on the 20th July 2017. Southend-on-Sea Borough Council will undertake a similar process later in the summer in line with their cabinet and council meeting timetable.
