Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities – Joint Minerals and Waste Plan: Call for Sites


Dear Sir/Madam,

Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities – Joint Minerals and Waste Plan: Call for Sites

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council, and Wokingham Borough Council (collectively referred to as the ‘Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities’) are working in partnership to produce a Joint Minerals & Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision-making in the Plan area.

The Joint Minerals & Waste Plan will build upon the formerly adopted minerals and waste plans for the Berkshire area. It will set out a new vision along with replacing the policies currently in place. It will also provide details of strategic sites that we propose will deliver the vision. It will include consideration of the current levels of provision for minerals and waste facilities in the Plan area. It will also establish the future levels of provision required to meet national and regional policy targets and objectives.

On behalf of the Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities, Hampshire County Council are asking mineral and waste site operators and land owners to put forward site proposals for consideration for minerals and waste uses, including any aspirations for existing sites to either extend or widen the range of operations or facilities.

The sites assessment process will help to identify whether there are suitable sites within Central & Eastern Berkshire to meet demands. To make this assessment we need you to provide essential information about the site, including what the proposal is for, its location, ownership as well as more detailed information.

We would therefore like to invite landowners, agents or potential developers, to put forward minerals and waste sites for consideration.

The sites that we are requiring details for mineral supply include;
· Soft sand or sharp sand and gravel;
· Mineral railheads;
· Aggregate recycling and secondary aggregate processing facilities.

Waste proposals may include the following types of site;
· Waste to energy facilities;
· Composting facilities;
· Recycling facilities;
· Waste transfer sites;
· Inert landfill (associated with quarry restoration).

The consultation begins on Monday 13th March 2017 and all sites should be submitted by 5.00pm on Friday 5th May 2017.

Any interested party should complete a ‘Site Proposals – Criteria Checklist’ (available online at https://www3.rbwm.gov.uk/info/200414/local_development_framework/594/emerging_plans_and_policies/4 ), along with a map clearly identifying the boundary by 5.00pm on Friday 5th May 2017. (Please note that if you are putting forward more than one site, you will need to fill out a separate form for each)

The completed ‘Site Allocations Proposal – Criteria Checklist’ should be returned electronically to jceb or in hard copy to:

Hampshire Services c/o Strategic Planning,
Hampshire County Council,
First Floor,
EII Court West,
The Castle,
SO23 8UD
Information on how the site will be assessed and when the outcome of the assessment will be made available is set out in the FAQs available at https://www3.rbwm.gov.uk/downloads/file/3018/frequently_asked_questions .
If you have any queries, please contact Hampshire Services on telephone number 01962 845785 or email jceb
Yours faithfully,

Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead working in partnership with Hampshire Services, Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council, and Wokingham Borough Council.
