The five Tees Valley local authorities (Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton-on-Tees) prepared joint Development Plan Documents (DPDs) to set out planning policies and site allocations on minerals and waste developments until 2026.
The Minerals and Waste Core Strategy DPD contains the long-term spatial vision and strategic policies needed to achieve the key objectives for minerals and waste developments in the Tees Valley. The Minerals and Waste Policies and Sites DPD conforms with the Core Strategy and identifies specific sites for future minerals and waste development, setting out the policies which will be used to assess minerals and waste planning applications.
Middlesbrough Council formally adopted the Tees Valley Joint Minerals and Waste Core Strategy and Policies and Sites DPDs as part of its Local Plan on 15 September 2011.
Copies of the inspector's letter and report, the notice of adoption, and addendum to the LDF proposals map are available to view via the public evidence library.
These documents are valid until 2026.
