At their full council meetings in September 2001 Members of Brighton & Hove City Council and East Sussex County Council considered and agreed a number of amendments to be included in the second draft of the Waste Local Plan. The plan is currently being revised in light of representations made on the first draft. Amongst the changes agreed were increases to the targets for recycling. The amendments have not affected the locations put forward for waste facilities in Brighton & Hove and they will now appear in a second draft of the plan. This is programmed to go out for a further period of consultation on 3 April 2002 for a six-week consultation period. This will provide an opportunity for comments on the amendments that have been made to the plan.
As part of the Waste Local Plan preparation process, East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council have made available a summary of all 13,000 individual representations made on the First Deposit draft of the Waste Local Plan. These were received during the consultation period of 1 November to 12 December 2000.
The purpose of this is to give people the opportunity to see details of representations and alternative sites proposed by objectors. It also gives objectors an opportunity to identify others who have similar objections so that they can consider whether to make a joint representation following publication of the Second Deposit Plan or at the Public Inquiry.
An outline of each objection is available in a list known as the Schedule of Objections. The schedule can be inspected at the Deposit Points in Brighton & Hove or in East Sussex.
A guidance note on how to find individual objections and other representations is available with the schedule. In addition there is a list of all the alternative sites that have been proposed by objectors, together with details of the particular type of use proposed for that site.
Copies of all the original representations received are available for inspection at County Hall, St Anne's Crescent, Lewes and Hove Town Hall, Norton Road between 9.00am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
This is an information stage only and no further representations on the Waste Local Plan can be taken into consideration until the consultation period for the Second Deposit version of the plan during Spring 2002.
There will be a further six-week period of consultation on the revised plan. At this stage all those who commented will be contacted and offered the opportunity to comment. Please note that at this stage we can only accept comments on those parts of the plan, which have changed. In accordance with the current legislation objections to any parts of the plan that have not changed will not be valid and cannot be considered at the Public Inquiry into the plan.
Any objections made within the deadline to the First Deposit Waste Local Plan, together with any new objections to the changes proposed in the Second Deposit Plan, will then be considered at the Local Plan Inquiry, conducted by an independent Inspector, which is scheduled to take place in Autumn of 2002.
