Waste Plan: Towards a Statistical Basis


The Government has introduced widespread reforms to the planning system in England. The cornerstone of the new system is the Local Plan which, the Government indicates, should be based on the objective use of an up to date, credible, robust and proportionate evidence base.


The “Towards a Statistical Basis for the Derby and Derbyshire Waste Plan” technical background paper is a tool to inform the Waste Plan preparation process. In order to develop this work the following key tasks have been undertaken:


·         Establish baseline waste arisings

·         Establish waste growth assumptions

·         Establish waste targets and develop scenarios

·         Identify how those scenarios effect existing waste capacity

·         Review landfill void data

·         Draw conclusions with regards to any capacity gap


This statistical basis paper will be used to provide a meaningful evidence base for developing the Waste Plan strategies and policies.


There are many different ways of capturing and analysing waste data and we welcome your views on the content of the paper and any suggestions as to how to improve the evidence.
