Updating our evidence base to inform a review of the Somerset Waste Core Strategy
We have begun to update our evidence base to inform a review of the Somerset Waste Core Strategy (adopted 2013). The results of this work will become a new Somerset Waste Plan.
One of the first topic areas we are reviewing is inert waste. We have prepared a revised topic paper on inert waste, which is available in the Downloads section of this page. In July 2016 we held a series of three breakfast seminars on inert waste to discuss the current position with a range of industry representatives.
We have prepared a topic paper on anaerobic digestion (AD). Version 1 of this paper is available for in the Downloads section of this page. If you have a comment on the AD topic paper, please let us know by email: email@example.com or by writing to Somerset County Council, Planning Policy Team, County Hall (B3W), Taunton, Somerset, TA1 4DY
We continue work on our evidence base and will publish relevant topic papers on this web page.
