Surrey County Council is undertaking a public consultation on the draft version of the new Surrey Waste Local Plan (SWLP) between 1 November 2017 and 7 February 2018.

This consultation reflects the responses and preferred options from the Issues and Options consultation for the new SWLP which was held between 2 September and 25 November 2016.

The draft plan provides the Vision, Strategic Objectives, Draft Policies and Proposed Sites which are intended to guide the future of waste management facilities in Surrey up until 2033. For more information, please visit the Minerals and Waste Planning Policy webpage for the consultation: or email

The council are encouraging consultation returns to be made online where at all possible for ease of processing.

Hard copies of documents will be available at district and borough offices and by calling 03456 009 009 or texting 07860 053 456.

Following this consultation Surrey County Council will be publishing and consulting on a pre-submission draft local plan which will then be submitted to the Government for independent examination.

The timetable for adopting the new SWLP is in the Surrey Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (MWDS). A draft version of the MWDS is available on the councils website and will be adopted following the outcome of the Draft Plan Consultation.
