Subject: Surrey Waste Local Plan: Publication of Submission Plan for representations

Visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan and complete the questionnaire. Views need to be submitted by 24 February 2019.

Last month, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet approved Surrey’s new Waste Local Plan for publication. We are required to produce the plan which contains planning policies and potential sites for new facilities to manage the county’s waste.

Before it can be adopted by the county council, it now has to be submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and examined in public by an independent planning inspector.

Residents and businesses together with all other stakeholders, including districts and boroughs, now have a final opportunity to comment on our Submission Plan, and have their views considered by the inspector. To do this they can visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan and complete the questionnaire. Views need to be submitted by 24 February 2019.

We are running a communications campaign on digital channels to reach residents and encourage them to share their views on the proposed plan. Please do encourage residents, businesses and stakeholders to feed in their views.

We are encouraging representations to be made online where at all possible. Nevertheless there is the opportunity to submit representations by email or in writing. Hard copies of documents will be available at district and borough offices and by calling 03456 009 009 or texting 07860 053 456.

For more information, please visit the Minerals and Waste Planning Policy webpage for the new waste plan: www.surreycc.gov.uk/newwasteplan. Or if you wish to contact an officer in the Minerals & Waste Policy Team please email wasteplan@surreycc.gov.uk and they will get back to you.
