Waste Needs Assessment

A Waste Needs Assessment was commissioned by Cheshire East and Council and produced by BPP Consulting during 2017. The report provides an understanding of the waste that requires management in Cheshire East for the period up to 2030. It also assesses the existing facilities that are available to manage this waste and considers the need for additional facilities to manage the forecast requirements. This study is intended to inform and support the preparation of planning policies related to waste and forms part of the Cheshire East Local Plan evidence base.

The Cheshire East Waste Needs Assessment consists of the overall main report and six waste stream-specific supporting reports.

Please note that the main report was updated on 01 May 2018 to correct a typographical error for the tonnage shown for the CDEW  ‘Organic waste treatment inc Composting’ in Table 10. The value has been amended from 6,293 to 6,860 tonnes reflecting the correct value shown in source Table 17 of Report (3) on CDEW and aligns with the value already displayed in Table 13 of this report. Therefore the change has no effect on the capacity gap findings presented. No other changes have been made to the document.
