Tees Valley Joint Minerals and Waste Development Plan Documents

Core Strategy DPD

Adopted September 2011


The Tees Valley Minerals and Waste Development Plan Documents (DPDs) - prepared jointly by the boroughs of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees - bring together the planning issues which arise from these two subjects within the sub-region.

Two DPDs have been prepared. This Minerals and Waste Core Strategy contains the long-term spatial vision and the strategic policies needed to achieve the key objectives for minerals and waste developments in the Tees Valley. The separate Policies and Sites DPD, which conforms with it, identifies specific sites for minerals and waste development and sets out policies which will be used to assess minerals and waste planning applications.

The DPDs form part of the local development framework and development plan for each Borough. They cover all of the five Boroughs except for the part within Redcar and Cleveland that lies within the North York Moors National Park. (Minerals and waste policies for that area are included in the national park’s own local development

The DPDs were prepared during a lengthy process of consultation. This allowed anyone with an interest in minerals and waste in the Tees Valley the opportunity to be involved. An Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State carried out an Examination into the DPDs in early 2011. He concluded that they had been prepared in accordance
with the requirements of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and were sound.
