North London to Continue ‘Exporting’ Waste
18 August 2015
A draft version of the strategy for handling North London’s waste for the next 15 years has been published – which identifies the need to increase recycling and waste treatment capacity in the region.
The seven North London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest are working together to prepare the North London Waste Plan (NLWP) which sets out planning policies for managing waste and identifying sites for waste facilities.
The seven boroughs re-started work on the Plan after the previous version was found by a Planning Inspector not to meet the Duty to Co-operate with other planning bodies under the Localism Act in 2012.
A consultation on the latest version of the strategy is running until September 30 and notes that exports of waste out of the region will continue.
