Additional documents:


The Principal Planning Officer introduced the report and stated that the Kent Minerals and Waste Plan was undergoing a refresh following the review undertaken in 2020.


The plan formed part of the Council’s Development Plan Documents and was used in the assessment of planning applications. There had not been any new mineral site allocations proposed.  The proposed changes related to policy amendments that would require consideration towards a circular waste economy, for example the re-use of materials. The suggested response was contained within Appendix 1 to the report.


The Committee expressed support for the expansion of the existing recycling site, alongside the additional site proposed. The Principal Planning Officer confirmed that the contents of the plan did not have any implications on the site allocations within the borough.




1.  The current consultation on the proposed refresh of the Kent Minerals and Waste Plan, be noted;


2.  The proposed response to the consultation as shown at Appendix 1 to the report, be agreed; and


3.  The additional household recycling site and the expansion of the existing site be welcomed.
