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.

Bournemouth, Dorset & Poole Mineral Sites Plan and Waste Plan

On 29th March 2018 the Mineral Sites Plan and the Waste Plan were both submitted to the Secretary of State for examination. This follows a concurrent period of consultation on both documents which commenced on 1st December 2017 and closed on 31st January 2018.

Further details on both plans and supporting documents can be found via the links below.
