Last chance to have your say on future minerals and waste sites

The final draft Mineral Sites Plan and Waste Plan will be open for public consultation in December. The revised documents give detailed information about future quarries and waste management facilities throughout the county.  The Waste Plan includes a new site for a replacement Waste Management Centre to serve Blandford and surrounding villages. Further north, the Plan includes a new household recycling centre in Gillingham to replace the Shaftesbury facility.

Cllr Daryl Turner, Cabinet member for natural and built environment, said “We are pleased that so many residents took part in a series of consultations over the last few years. Many of their concerns have been incorporated into the plans, and we want to encourage people to review the documents and give us their views during the final consultation in December. The Plans should ensure that we protect Dorset’s environment whilst building a sustainable economy for the future.”
