Landfill space is running out and buried waste releases climate-changing gases. New ways of dealing with waste are needed. Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton are working together to meet this challenge by developing the South London Waste Plan. Following last autumn’s consultation on issues and options, Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton councils have identified potential sites for future waste management facilities and drafted policies to guide their development.

Why your views matter

Your feedback is now needed on these potential sites and policies to help inform the Plan’s development. We have prepared a leaflet that summarises some of the key issues and asks for your views on potential sites and draft policies. If you would like to get involved further, we have produced a more detailed consultation document in which you can feed back to us your views on additional issues. You need to send us your responses by no later than midnight on Friday 16 October 2009. We cannot guarantee that late responses will be considered in the development of the Plan.
