Minerals and waste

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
