Where are we now?

The Waste Core Strategy Local Plan (PDF 3.41 MB) sets out how we plan for waste management facilities in Worcestershire until 2027. The Waste Core Strategy Local Plan was adopted by Full Council on 15th November 2012 and is now part of the development plan.

It will be used by the County Council to make decisions about planning applications for waste management facilities. City, Borough and District Councils in Worcestershire will also use it to make decisions about other types of planning applications that could have waste implications.

The Strategy will guide developers as to what type of development will be acceptable where and will encourage and stimulate businesses involved in recycling and re-use of resources.

Waste Sites Web Tool to support Policy WCS 16 

web-tool has been developed to support Policy WCS 16 (New development proposed on or near to existing waste management facilities). It maps all known waste sites in the county with a 250m buffer.

Please contact us if you have any further questions about the Waste Core Strategy.

Details regarding the development of the Waste Core Strategy Local Plan are set out on the Preparation Archive.

We monitor the implementation of the Waste Core Strategy Local Plan and report on this annually in the Annual Monitoring Report.
