Nearly a year has passed since the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework, its release swept aside thousands of pages of planning policy and guidance. Whilst waste planning survived the streamlining process, NPPF has ushered in a new era of strategic planning focused on driving growth in areas such as housing, transport and energy that clearly will have a knock on effect on strategic waste issues across the country. In addition, local authorities have a keen eye on the Waste Framework Directive sanctions and are anticipating the release of the National Waste Management Plan in 2013.
The Government’s localism agenda and specifically the duty to cooperate have resulted in action from many local authorities in relation to the challenging, borderless nature of waste arisings. Numerous interests, keen to exploit the opportunities available, are closely following the impact of these recent changes. A key question is whether this action will be effective in driving sustainable development?
This briefing and workshop will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss these challenges with key government officials, the waste industry and waste planning sectors.
