Minerals and Waste Local Plan (MWLP)

A Minerals and Waste Local Plan (MWLP) is being prepared to guide mineral extraction and the management of waste in Herefordshire up to 2041 and beyond. This will replace the saved minerals and waste policies of the Unitary Development Plan.

The MWLP explains the vision, objectives and strategy for minerals and waste planning. It contains detailed policies and locations for future minerals extraction (such as sand and gravel pits or crushed rock quarries) and for the development of waste management facilities (such as recycling centres).
