Mineral and Waste Plan

Find out about Norfolk County Council's policy that plans for waste disposal and mineral extraction

About the plan

The mineral and waste planning policies give guidance to developers on:

  • how the waste produced in Norfolk should be dealt with 
  • how much mineral extraction is needed (and where to extract the minerals)

It also makes clear where mineral extraction, associated development and waste management facilities should and shouldn't be located.

Any development involving mineral extraction and waste management facilities must preserve or, where possible, enhance the landscape and townscape character.

The policy is dealt with by Norfolk County Council (NCC). You can view the full policy on their website.
