Policies we consider when drawing up a planning application for waste development and which we must bear in mind when deciding such applications.

The plan was due to expire on 17 May 2009. However, the government has issued a direction allowing some policies to be extended, or 'saved', until the policies being developed in the minerals and waste development framework supersede them.

The 'saved' policies will continue to form part of the statutory development plan and provide the local policy framework for development control decisions until they are replaced by ones in the North Yorkshire minerals and waste plan.
