Minerals and Waste Planning

The below assessments forms part of the evidence base to support the preparation of the Local Plan.


Local Aggregates Assessment

The Local Aggregates Assessment (LAA) forms part of the evidence base to support the preparation of the Local Plan Review (link to webpage).

The National Planning Policy Framework requires Mineral Planning Authorities to plan for a steady and adequate supply of aggregates by preparing a Local Aggregates Assessment (LAA).

The LAA is required to:

  • forecast the demand for aggregates based on average 10 year sales data and
  • other relevant local information;
  • analyse all aggregate supply options; and
  • assess the balance between demand and supply

This is the 2018 edition and includes the most recent (2017) aggregate sales and reserves data for Rutland. The 10 year period covered by this LAA is 2008 to 2017. This LAA will form part of the evidence base to inform the Partial Review of Rutland’s Minerals Core Strategy and Development Control Policies Development Plan Document as part of the Rutland Local Plan.

Local Waste Needs Assessment

The Local Waste Needs Assessment forms part of the evidence base to support the preparation of the Local Plan Review (link to webpage).

The assessment provides information about waste in Rutland including:

  • how much waste is produced
  • how it is managed
  • waste arisings and movements
  • existing and future waste management capacity

The document will help inform the plan-making process and takes account of current policy requirements (including targets) as well as data and other information.
