The East Sussex and Brighton & Hove Waste Local Plan will be adopted without any further modifications to those advertised on February 10, 2005.
Both councils will publish a statutory notice advertising their adoption of the Waste Local Plan on Friday.
The 10-year plan sets out the councils’ strategies for dealing with the area’s waste, which includes the controversial proposals for an energy-from-waste (EfW) plant at Newhaven.
Its validity can be questioned on the grounds that it is not within the powers conferred by Part II of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 or that any requirement of that Act or any regulation made under it has not been complied with in the relation to the adoption of the plan.
Text of the adopted Waste Local Plan is available for inspection from 15 locations around East Sussex and Brighton & Hove and all libraries, as well as both councils’ websites.
The councils are still currently assessing the planning application for the Newhaven EfW plant, following the public consultation earlier this year. According to an East Sussex County Council spokeswoman, the report on Newhaven is not expected to go to the planning committee for “quite some time”.
