We would like to thank Trevor Symonds MIDE for putting together an excellent regional meeting and writing the report below. Thank you also to Northern Safety Ltd for sponsoring it.

The most recent North East IDE regional meeting held on Thursday 12th July, brought together 19 IDE members along with a small number of non members.  The meeting was held at the Bridge Hotel in Wetherby and as the members arrived for the meeting the sun came out and the patio area was soon filled with demolition talk.  


West Sussex Waste Local Plan Consultation

Written on July 16, 2012 at 12:59 pm, by

The consultation has now been extended to Monday 13 August 2012 (5pm).

In partnership, West Sussex County Council and the South Downs National Park Authority are preparing a Waste Local Plan which includes potential strategic waste site allocations. The draft Waste Local Plan sets out a vision for sustainable waste management which protects communities, the environment, the economy, and the special character of West Sussex until 2031.

The draft Waste Local Plan has four key areas:

  1. A vision and ‘strategic objectives’ for sustainable waste management in West Sussex.
  1. Nine ‘use-specific’ policies which will achieve the strategic objectives for the management of different types of waste (policies W1-W9).
  1. Thirteen ‘development management’ policies which will ensure that there would be no unacceptable harm to the environment and communities of West Sussex (policies W11-W23).
  1. Seven strategic waste site allocations which will help us to meet the need for new facilities:
  • Site north of Wastewater Treatment Works, Ford
  • Hobbs Barn, near Climping
  • Fuel Depot, Bognor Road, Chichester
  • Brookhurst Wood, near Warnham
  • Land west of Wastewater Treatment Works, Goddards Green
  • Decoy Farm, Worthing
  • Extension to Brookhurst Wood Landfill, near Horsham
