Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (MWDS)

A Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (MWDS) sets out a three-year work programme for preparing local minerals and waste planning documents.

The most recent MWDS for Gloucestershire covers the period from April 2021 to the end of March 2024. It largely considers the preparation of  a new waste local plan to replace the adopted Gloucestershire Waste Core Strategy and remaining, yet-to-be replaced ‘saved’ policies of the adopted Gloucestershire Waste Local Plan.
