Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

East Sussex, South Downs and Brighton & Hove Minerals and Waste Sites Plan

The East Sussex, South Downs and Brighton & Hove Waste and Minerals Sites Plan (WMSP) is a joint Plan being prepared by East Sussex County Council, the South Downs National Park Authority and Brighton & Hove City Council (The Authorities). A Public Examination into the legal compliance and the ‘soundness’ of the WMSP began when the Plan was submitted to Government in April 2016. Public Hearings were held between 2nd and 4th August 2016.

Prior to and during the Public Examination the Authorities proposed a number of modifications to the WMSP. A public consultation on these proposed modifications ended on the 7th October 2016. The Planning Inspector has considered the Plan and has published his report. His report can be downloaded from the East Sussex County Council website .

It is currently anticipated that the three authorities will adopt the joint Plan in early 2018.
