Consultation on Main Modifications to the Proposed Submission North London Waste Plan.

In response to issues raised in the hearing sessions held in November 2019, the North London Boroughs have prepared a Schedule of Proposed Modifications to the NLWP. This document has been published for consultation along with a Sustainability Appraisal Addendum, Habitat Regulations Assessment and other supporting documents. All of the documents can be found on the NLWP website.

The consultation is seeking views on the proposed Main Modifications. It is not an opportunity to raise matters that either were, or could have been, part of the earlier representations or hearings on the submitted plan. Comments should focus on whether the Main Modifications comply with the legal requirements and are considered sound.

Further guidance on making representations on the Main Modifications can be found in the Representation Form and Guidance Notes document.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, paper copies of the documents are only available in some of the main planning offices and libraries of the boroughs. Details are given in the Representation Form and

Guidance Notes. Our strong preference is for consultees to make use of the online version of documents if possible, however if you require hard copies of documents please request these by email:

Please submit representations electronically using one of these methods:

Alternatively, you can post your representation to North London Waste Plan, Planning and Regeneration, Camden Town Hall, Judd Street WC1H 9JE.
