Greater Manchester Joint Waste Development Plan Document

Under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 the ten unitary authorities in Greater Manchester agreed to produce a Joint Waste Development Plan Document (JWDPD) for Greater Manchester. The Greater Manchester authorities considered that this arrangement offered the most potential for efficient and effective working on detailed waste planning matters.

The JWDPD sets out a spatial framework for waste developments within Tameside and includes detailed development control policies and identifies sites and preferred areas for a range of waste management facilities required up until 2020. 

Development of the JWDPD began in September 2006 and included a number of consultation stages which have informed the approach to and content of the document. Outcomes reports on the various stages of the documents production and consultation are available at the Greater Manchester Waste Development Plan Document website The reports summarise, among other things, comments received and proposals for how the issues identified during consultation were considered at the various stages.

The JWDPD was submitted to the Secretary of State and underwent independent examination during 2011, following this the Planning Inspectorate confirmed that the plan was sound and met all necessary legislative requirements.

On 21 February 2012 Tameside Council approved the adoption of the JWDPD and consequent changes to Tameside's Proposals Map from the 1 April 2012. As a result, from the 1 April 2012 the JWDPD became part of the statutory development plan for Tameside.

The following documents and including the Proposals Map are available to view:

Further background documentation including all of the above are available on the Greater Manchester Waste Development Plan Document website .
