On 19 February 2013 the East Sussex, South Downs, and Brighton & Hove Waste and Minerals Plan (2013) was formally adopted.
This plan contains minerals and waste policy for the part of the South Downs National Park that falls within East Sussex and Brighton & Hove.
This plan replaces the majority of the policies that were contained in the Waste Local Plan (2006) and Minerals Local Plan (1999).
(N.B. Some policies in the Waste Local Plan and Minerals Local Plan that relate to site allocations were saved, and these will be reviewed in the forthcoming Waste and Minerals Sites Plan. Further information on the Waste and Minerals Plan (2013) is available from the East Sussex Webpage
