Essex County Council and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) Town and Country Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2012 Notice of Proposed Modifications of the Essex and Southend-on-Sea Replacement Waste Local Plan
An independent examination into Essex County Council and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council Replacement Waste Local Plan is currently underway. Following public hearing sessions, held in September/October 2016, the Authorities have made a request to the Inspector to make several modifications (changes), which are necessary to make the plan sound and appropriate for adoption. These proposed modifications will be available for public consultation from Thursday 5 January until Thursday 16 February 2017. This is a focused consultation, with representations on the potential modifications and the supporting addendum reports to the Site Assessment and Methodology Report and the Sustainability Appraisal to be taken into account in the Inspector's report. Any response which refers to other aspects of the Replacement Waste Local Plan or the evidence base will not be considered.
The Replacement Waste Local Plan, once adopted, will form part of the Development Plan for Essex and will replace the Essex Waste Local Plan, which was adopted in 2001. Once adopted, the Plan will set out the vision and policy governing waste development in Essex until 2032. The Plan outlines the vision, objectives and spatial strategy to enable the delivery of sustainable waste development and sets out policies to manage waste. The Plan allocates 19 sites and designates 31 Areas of Search for future management facilities.
