The Surrey Waste Plan will be inspected on Legal Compliance and Soundness, both are explained below.

1. Legal Compliance

Is the Plan compliant with the legal requirements of the relevant Planning Acts and Regulations; Section 20(5) (a) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended)

  • Has regard to National Policy and guidance issued by the secretary of state.
  • Has been prepared in line with Local Development Schemes.
  • Complied with the Town and County Planning Act (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. On submission of the Local Plan , the council must publish the documents prescribed in the regulations, and make them available at their principal officers and on their website.
  • Whether the appropriate notifications have been made.
  • Whether a Sustainability Appraisal assessing social, environmental and economic factors has been done and made public.
  • Whether the plan meets the requirements of the Habitats Directive and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 (as amended).

2. Soundness

Tests of soundness will be applied to non-strategic policies. The independent planning inspector is required to consider if the plan has been positively prepared, is justified and effective and is consistent with national policy. As set out in National Planning Policy Framework 2018, para 35.

  • Positively prepared - Providing a strategy which, as a minimum, seeks to meet the area's objectively assessed needs; and is informed by agreements with other authorities, so that unmet need from neighbouring areas is accommodated where it is practical to do so and is consistent with achieving sustainable development.
  • Justified - an appropriate strategy taking into account the reasonable alternatives, and based on proportionate evidence.
  • Effective - deliverable over the plan period and based on effective joint working on cross-boundary strategic matters that have been dealt with rather than deferred, as evidenced by the statement of common ground.
  • Consistent with national policy - enabling the delivery of sustainable development in accordance with the policies in the National Planning Policy framework.
