Minerals & Waste

Planning for waste disposal and mineral extraction in Dorset

Our Planning Board makes decisions on applications for mineral sites and waste management facilities in Bournemouth. However, under an agreement, we are advised on strategic minerals and waste planning matters by Dorset County Council officers. Dorset County Council is responsible for the preparation of minerals and waste planning documents for Bournemouth Borough Council, the Borough of Poole and Dorset councils.

Pre-Submission Consultation

On 8th November 2017 Cabinet agreed to a concurrent period of public consultation on the Mineral Sites Plan and Waste Plan prior to their submission to the Secretary of State for examination.

The period of consultation commenced on 1st December 2017 and runs until 31st January 2018 (5.00pm). Further details on the consultation and links to the consultation documents can be found via the links below.
