Minerals and Waste Scheme

Sets out the programme for preparing the Minerals and Waste Local Plan

The Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (12th Edition) was approved by Cabinet on 19 October 2021.

The Minerals and Waste Development Scheme sets out:

  • the documents we propose to prepare as part of the Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Local Plan
  • the planning policy status, subject matter, and geographical coverage of each document
  • the timetable for preparing them.

The 12th Minerals and Waste Development Scheme has a number of key changes to our previous Schemes.  These key changes are:

  • Inclusion of a Review of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan: Part 1 - Core Strategy
  • Inclusion of a Partial Update to Minerals and Waste Local Plan: Part 1 - Core Strategy
  • Delay to Minerals and Waste Local Plan: Part 2 - Site Allocations Document

This work will ensure that the Minerals and Waste Local Plan is in conformity with the NPPF and based on a sound evidence base.
