Original consultation

We want your views on our proposed changes to national planning policy to help deliver waste infrastructure in Wales.

Consultation description

The main changes being proposed are:

  • Acknowledging that waste policy targets and drivers have evolved and consequently the Regional Waste Plans which are based upon land take are now outdated and should be revoked.
  • Introducing a requirement for data collection monitoring and annual reports. These can be used as evidence to support development plans and planning decisions.
  • Introducing a requirement to keep a minimum amount of landfill capacity in each region (North, South West and South East) relative to a trigger point (the level for this trigger point is part of this consultation). Hitting the trigger will result in a site search and selection process to identify suitable locations for landfill.
  • Updating policy direction to enable waste facilities to move up the waste hierarchy through the introduction of a Waste Planning Assessment (WPA).
