The North London Waste Plan (NLWP) has been prepared jointly by the seven North London Boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest. It sets out the planning framework for waste management in North London until 2036. It identifies existing waste sites and capacity, Priority Areas for new waste management facilities and sets out policies for determining waste planning applications.
The NLWP was found sound by an Inspector in October 2021. More information on the public hearings and the Inspector’s Report together with the schedule of Main Modifications can be found on the Examination page.
The North London Boroughs have each adopted the NLWP. Links to the relevant Council meetings can be found below. The NLWP is now part of each borough’s Development Plan and is a key planning policy document for the determination of planning applications in North London.
