Mineral and waste development framework

NORTH Yorkshire County Council has announced the development and preparation of the Minerals and Waste Development Framework (MWDF).

The collection of policy documents will eventually replace the substantially outdated Minerals and Waste Local Plan, which was adopted in 1997.

The MWDF will be completed and ready to use by 2013, until which the existing policies will continue to be followed.

NYCC stresses however that these policies should not be confused with their Municipal Waste Management Strategy, a separate strategy which also deals with long term waste management issues.
