Did you know that Worcestershire County Council (WCC) has a role to play in planning in Worcestershire?
This includes policies and strategies about minerals and waste and major infrastructure projects like new railway stations and bridges etc.
WCC is refreshing its planning consultation database, and you can register at any time for information you are interested in.
WCC’s work includes:
- Developing strategies relating to ecology and biodiversity that make Worcestershire distinct and special;
- Research on key sustainable development issues facing the planning system e.g., climate change, soils, and water management;
- Planning for infrastructure such as schools and highway projects;
- Developing planning policies for the county’s waste; and
- Developing planning policies about where minerals should be extracted in the county and how those sites should be restored.
This is your opportunity to get involved in the planning work WCC does. You can find out how to sign up to be consulted about the topics you are interested in and see a more detailed explanation of what each topic area covers. To find out more visit: www.worcestershire.gov.uk/get-involved-planning.
