Forward Plan Ref: 2020/062

Contact: Charlotte Simms, Senior Minerals and Waste Planning Officer Tel: 07741 607726

 

Report by Director for Planning & Place (CMDE10).

 

The County Council is required to prepare and publish monitoring reports on the Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Local Plan. This is a procedural and information requirement which has been met by the production each year of a Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report. The Annual Monitoring Report must report on the implementation of the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (the programme for preparation of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan) and on the extent to which local plan policies are being achieved. A draft Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2018 (Calendar Year) has been prepared, covering the year 1 January to 31 December 2018.

 

The draft Annual Monitoring Report 2018 reports on progress in the preparation of the revised Minerals and Waste Local Plan in relation to the programme in the Council's Minerals and Waste Development Scheme.

 

It also reports on:

 

a)  production of aggregate minerals;

b)  permissions granted for mineral working and landbanks of permitted reserves;

c)  production of secondary and recycled aggregates;

d)  amounts of waste produced and methods of management;

e)  permissions granted for waste management facilities and capacity of facilities.

 

It cross refers to the Council's Local Aggregate Assessment 2019 and Waste Needs Assessments 2020 and 2015, which contain more detailed information and will sit alongside and complement the Annual Monitoring Report. In addition, it reports on work undertaken by the Council to meet the Duty to Cooperate.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED to:

 

(a) approve the Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2018 (Calendar Year) annexed to the report CMDE10;

 

(b) authorise the Director for Planning & Place to carry out any necessary

     final editing of the Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2018

     (Calendar Year) for publication on the County Council website.
