We are responsible for the production, monitoring, and review of a Minerals and Waste Local Plan.
Lincolnshire minerals and waste local plan
The current plan consists of two parts:
- Core strategy and development management policies - this outlines the principles for the future winning and working of minerals and the form of waste management. It also provides the criteria under which we consider minerals and waste development applications.
- Site locations - this includes specific proposals and policies for the provision of land for mineral and waste.
Review of the Lincolnshire minerals and waste local plan
An in-depth review of the Lincolnshire minerals and waste local plan has been undertaken assessing whether the policies remain relevant and effective. The review concludes that while many of the policies are performing well, the whole plan would benefit from being updated.
Statement of community involvement
The statement of community involvement outlines how the council plans to involve and consult the public and stakeholders.
Minerals and waste development scheme
A new minerals and waste development scheme came into effect on 19 February 2021 following the County Council's decision to update the Lincolnshire Minerals and Waste Local Plan. This sets out the timetable for the preparation of a new plan, which will be produced as a single document.
