A guide to the Local Plan

Joint Waste Plan

The Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Joint Waste Plan forms part of Rotherham’s Local Plan.

The Joint Waste Plan identifies sites for major waste facilities, and protects a range of existing facilities to meet our current and future needs and maximise recycling, support green jobs and divert waste from landfill. It also includes detailed policies to guide decisions on planning applications.

South Yorkshire Waste Needs Assessment (2021-2041)
Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Councils have produced a joint Waste Needs Assessment that covers the whole of the South Yorkshire. The Assessment contains updated information to be considered alongside the Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham joint waste plan.
It identifies current waste management facilities, waste arising estimates and forecasts future need for various waste types up to 2041.
