From the 1st June 2007 all planning applications will require supporting information that covers the waste minimisation strategy for the development.
These will be in the form of a Site Waste Management Plan or Site Waste Management Statement.
Site Waste Management Plan
These are required for all developments over five units (housing) or 500sq m built development area.
Site Waste Management Statements
These are for smaller development not covered by a Site Waste Management Plan and should demonstrate how the elements of sustainable waste management have been incorporated into the scheme.
You can download the East Sussex County Council Construction and Waste Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which outlines the requirements for the documents below.
You can also download further guidance from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
