The South London Waste Plan Development Plan Document

The South London Waste Plan sets out the issues and objectives to be met in waste management for the next ten years. It is a joint DPD and covers the geographical area comprising the London Borough of Croydon, the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, the London Borough of Merton and the London Borough of Sutton. It contains policies to guide the determination of planning applications for waste facilities and identifies existing waste sites to be safeguarded and areas where waste facility development may be suitable.

The South London Waste Plan, as amended by the binding Inspector's Report, was adopted by the Council on 5 March 2012.

Following adoption, there is a six-week legal challenge period, ie from 6 March to 17 April. Details of possible grounds for a legal challenge are given in the Adoption Statement (see below).

The South London Waste Plan is one of three Development Plan Documents within the Sutton Local Development Framework. It is in conformity with the Core Planning Strategy and complements the Site Development Policies DPD.
