Planning Structure for the Development of the National Waste Strategy (August 2003, Stephen Tromans)


CategoryArticlesDate

Implementation of the Government’s statutory Waste Strategy 2000 for England and Wales  is going to present many challenges, but none are likely to be more exacting than the timely provision of the necessary facilities to achieve the capacity for waste diverted from landfill.  But what are the necessary facilities?  The Strategy is not exactly up-front in this respect.  It is an extraordinary omission that nowhere in the main body of the Strategy is there to be found a clear indication of the number of such facilities likely to be needed.

By contrast, the draft strategy “A way with waste” (June 1999) set out these predictions in Part I at page 25.  More coyly, in the final version, Annex C (at page 181 of Volume 2 of the Strategy) and Appendix C to that Annex list a number of options, based on different mixes of incineration with energy recovery, recycling, composting and kerbside collection.
