Any person aggrieved by the Core Strategy may make an application to the High Court under Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 on the grounds that:

  • (a) the document is not within the appropriate power;
  • (b) a procedural requirement has not been complied with.

An application must be made promptly, and in any event, no later than the end of the period of six weeks starting with the date of the adoption of the Core Strategy, i.e. by 27th December 2012.

Waste Core Strategy

The Waste Core Strategy will set out the ground rules for waste management facilities in the County until 2027. To make sure it is based on the best possible understanding of waste management issues in Worcestershire we have developed a set of background documents and considered existing evidence, policies and strategies.

  • Waste Core Strategy background documents.

    Background documents have been developed and consulted on alongside the development of the Waste Core Strategy and have informed its development. The background documents have been submitted to the Secretary of State as part of the Document Library for the examination of the Waste Core Strategy and can be found in the section LEB: Local Evidence Base

  • Assessments of the potential impacts of the Waste Core Strategy.
    The potential impacts of the Waste Core Strategy have been assessed through Sustainability Appraisal , Habitats Regulations Assessment and Equality Impact Assessment. These documents have been submitted to the Secretary of State as part of the Document Library for the examination of the Waste Core Strategy and can be found in the section APP: Appraisals and Assessments.

  • Regional evidence base.
    The evidence upon which the Regional Spatial Strategy and Phase 2 Revision were based has been considered in the development of the Waste Core Strategy. The relevant parts of the regional evidence base have been submitted to the Secretary of State as part of the Document Library for the examination of the Waste Core Strategy and can be found in the section REB: Regional Evidence Base

  • Local plans, strategies and research papers.
    The Waste Core Strategy has been informed by many local plans, strategies and research papers. These have been submitted to the Secretary of State as part of the Document Library for the examination of the Waste Core Strategy and can be found in the sections SCS: Sustainable Community Strategies and OLS: Other Local Strategies
