Waste Core Strategy
Where are we now?
Core Strategy Local Plan (PDF 3.41 MB) sets out how we
plan for waste management facilities in Worcestershire until 2027.
The Waste Core Strategy Local Plan was adopted by Full Council on
15th November 2012 and is now part of the development plan.
It will be used by the County Council to make
decisions about planning applications for waste management
facilities. City, Borough and District Councils in Worcestershire
will also use it to make decisions about other types of planning
applications that could have waste implications.
The Strategy will guide developers as to what
type of development will be acceptable where and will encourage and
stimulate businesses involved in recycling and re-use of
