Purpose of Report: A new plan to guide planning decisions about minerals and waste in York until 2030 will be considered by Executive.

The Executive will be asked to adopt the Minerals and Waste Joint Plan, which sets out planning policies for minerals and waste developments as well as providing protection for residents, businesses and the environment when plans are considered.

City of York Council, North Yorkshire County Council and North York Moors National Park Authority have prepared the plan, following a decision to work together in 2013.

Since then, much work has taken place, including extensive public consultation and a public examination of the plan by a government Planning Inspector. Modifications recommended by the Inspector have been incorporated into the plan following further consultation.

The Executive will be asked to note the authority has now received the Planning Inspector’s report, which says that the plan satisfies all requirements and is sound. As a result, the Executive will be asked to recommend to Full Council adoption
of the plan.
