Waste Local Plan for Gloucestershire | Duty to Co-operate Scoping Paper – Consultation

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Gloucestershire County Council is preparing a new countywide Waste Local Plan. The ambition is for the county’s waste resources to be handled in an increasingly efficient and effective way. Our response to managing our waste should also meaningfully contribute to tackling wider land-use challenges facing Gloucestershire over the coming decade and beyond.

In preparing the new waste plan, the County Council must comply with planning legislation relating to co-operation with other organisations on strategic matters. This is known as the ‘Duty to Co-operate’.

To help identify and respond to strategic matters during plan-making, the County Council has prepared a draft Duty to Co-operate Scoping Paper. This document sets out what strategic matters will be discussed; which organisations will need to be involved; and how efforts to work collaboratively will be carried out and recorded.

Gloucestershire County Council is very keen to hear your views on its planned approach to the Duty to Co-operate. The thoughts of all organisations likely to be directly involved are being sought. However, all other parties with an interest in waste planning across the county are encouraged to participate.

A series of questions have been made available below. These are aimed at assisting prospective consultees in effectively communicating their thoughts and ideas to the County Council. It would be greatly appreciated if you / or your organisation could try and use this communication option if you decide to make a response.

Alternatively, responses can be received via email:- m-wplans@gloucestershire.gov.uk . Please include in the subject – ‘DUTY TO CO-OPERATE CONSULTATION 21’. Hard copy letters can also be received. The postal address is: - Minerals & Waste Policy | Strategic Infrastructure; Environment, Economy & Infrastructure; Shire Hall, Gloucester; GL1 2TG.

To guarantee your views are considered prior to a final, published version of the Scoping Paper, they need to be with the County Council by no later than 5pm on 21st December 2021.

If you / or your organisation have any further questions about this consultation please contact m-wplans@gloucestershire.gov.uk. A member of the team will aim to get back to you as quickly as they can.

Thank you in advance for contributing to this consultation.
