Caring for the Park
The Hampshire Authorities (Hampshire County Council and its partner authorities, including the South Downs National Park Authority) adopted the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan (HMWP) on 15th October 2013. The HMWP contains minerals and waste planning policy for the part of the South Downs National Park that falls within Hampshire.

The South Downs National Park Authority and its partner Authorities Hampshire County Council, Southampton City Council, Portsmouth City Council, New Forest National Park Authority (collectively known as the Hampshire Authorities), are working to produce a partial update to the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision making in the Plan Area up until 2040.
