Joint waste plan

What is the Joint Waste Plan?

The Joint Waste Plan will provide waste planning policies for Hull and the East Riding. It will replace the existing Joint Waste Local Planwhich was adopted in November 2004 and will:

  • allocate specific sites for waste management use;
  • provide policies against which waste management proposals on non-allocated sites will be judged;
  • set out the context for requiring a site waste management plan in new developments;
  • protect sensitive environments from harmful waste management development.

Hull City Council is leading on production of the Joint Waste Plan with East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

What is the latest stage in preparing the Joint Waste Plan?

Work on developing the evidence base of current sites and projected need for the Preferred Approach is currently underway, taking into account the revocation of the RSS, the issuing of the NPPF and the impact of the new Joint Waste Contract.

Can I view previous consultations for the Joint Waste Plan?

Yes. A second Issues and Options consultation paper was published in Spring 2012. An initial consultation was carried out in 2008, but due to a number of factors, work on the JWP was suspended. Since then there have been a number of changes, including significantly improved municipal recycling rates and an overall fall in waste arisings, and it was appropriate to re-consult on Issues and Options.
