Minerals and waste joint plan

As minerals and waste planning authorities, North Yorkshire County Council, the City of York Council and the North York Moors National Park Authority are producing a minerals and waste joint plan.

The minerals and waste joint plan will, once finalised, set out new planning policies for minerals and waste developments across all three areas which will guide decisions on planning applications up to 31 December 2030.

The minerals and waste joint plan is intended to deal with key questions about future development such as:

  • Where should future minerals and waste development be directed;
  • When should future development take place; and
  • What sort of development should take place and how should it be implemented.

Engagement with the public, the minerals and waste industry and other organisations is a key part of the process and has enabled the authorities to take into account the views of those with an interest in the plan.

Why produce a minerals and waste joint plan

Advice and guidance produced by the Government seeks to move towards enhanced working between local authorities on areas of common interest to achieve sustainable development. The nature of minerals and waste developments mean that often there are implications beyond individual planning authorities' boundaries.

North Yorkshire County Council, the City of York Council and North York Moors National Park Authority have decided to produce a minerals and waste joint plan so that strategic issues can be addressed on a greater than local level and to help comply with the 'duty to co-operate'. Production of a joint plan is also expected to be more efficient than producing three separate plans.

Timetable

The current timetable for production of the minerals and waste joint plan was agreed in 2016 and is summarised as follows:

Minerals and waste joint planDate
Preparation of minerals and waste joint planMay 2013 to October 2016
PublicationNovember 2016
SubmissionMarch 2017
ExaminationApril 2017 to October 2017
AdoptionNovember 2017

The Authorities are currently reviewing the timetable for submission of the Minerals and Waste Joint Plan and an update will be provided here shortly.

Joint minerals and waste plan members working group

The joint minerals and waste plan members working group has been established to provide a forum at which members of City of York Council, North Yorkshire County Council and North York Moors National Park Authority can jointly discuss matters relating to the content and preparation of the minerals and waste joint plan. Agendas and notes of the meetings will be provided here for information.

Minerals and waste plan publication period for representations November / December 2016

Following the minerals and waste joint plan preferred options consultation the responses, along with related evidence, were considered and used to help develop the final draft version of the plan for publication for representations on legal compliance and soundness. The period of time for making representations on the publication version of the minerals and waste joint plan is now closed. Any representations received after the deadline cannot be accepted as being duly made. However, we will forward any late representations to the planning inspector for their information. A copy of the documents presented as part of the publication period are available below for reference only. The representations submitted in response to the publication document are currently being considered and the minerals and waste joint plan documents are being progressed ready for submission to the planning inspectorate in spring 2017. A table listing the respondents and a  copy of the submitted representations is available in the table below, due to the volume of representations received the representations have been split into four groups. A report containing a summary of the representations is also available in the table below.

Consultation on additional or revised sites January 2015

The minerals and waste joint plan issues and options consultation took place early in 2014, which included initial details of minerals and waste sites submitted to the authorities for consideration as to whether they were suitable for inclusion in the joint plan. One of the outcomes from the issues and options consultation were the submission of new and revised sites which have subsequently been put out for consultation in the supplementary sites document January 2015. This consultation has now closed and a summary of responses is available to view in the table below. The consultation document is available to view in the table below:
