1. 0   INTRODUCTION

1.1    This Statement has been produced in order to set out the main issues
       arising from public consultation on the RECAP Waste Management
       Design Guide, and to show how representations have been considered
       or addressed in the Draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

1.2    The RECAP Waste Management Design Guide supplements policies
       CS16 Household Recycling Centres and CS28 Waste Minimisation,
       Re-use and Resource Recovery in the Cambridgeshire and
       Peterborough Minerals and Waste Core Strategy.

2.0    CONSULTATION

2.1    Consultation on the draft SPD took place between 15 February and 29
       March 2010. This took place alongside consultation on the Proposed
       Submission stage of the ‘parent’ Plan, the Cambridgeshire and
       Peterborough Minerals and Waste Core Strategy. Consulting at the
       same time enabled people to see how the two documents were related.

2.2    During the public consultation on the SPD the Councils received 103
       detailed points, made by 12 consultees.

3.0    MAIN ISSUES RAISED

3.1    The most significant concern raised by the responses received related
       to Household Recycling Centres (HRCs). There was a firm view that
       there was insufficient information in the Design Guide to explain how
       the financial contributions to be sought from developers, towards the
       provision of HRCs, would be calculated in Cambridgeshire.

3.2    In response to this concern it is accepted there is a need to explain in
       greater detail how the contributions for additional and/or expanded
       Household Recycling Centres would be calculated by the County
       Council as Waste Disposal Authority. To meet this concern further work
       has been undertaken by the County Council’s Waste Management
       Service to determine the scale and nature of the developer
       contributions which will be sought for the upgrading of existing HRCs
       (Alconbury, Wisbech, Whittlesey and Thriplow) and additional capacity
       / HRCs (March, St Neots, Witchford and Cambridge area).

3.3    It is proposed that the Guide will set out the rationale for the
       contributions to be sought, as well as an illustrative formula, which is
       shown in Table 8.2 at the end of this document. This shows that the
       contributions will be sought by taking into account factors including the
       cost of the provision of a new or improved HRC, the catchment area of
       the HRC, and the number of existing and proposed new households.
       This information will make the Guide more explicit, and will provide



                                                                               3
      developers and others with the information they were looking for
      regarding HRC contributions in Cambridgeshire.

3.4   In addition to the HRC concerns there were also a number of other
      representations which raised issues on the timing of the RECAP Waste
      Management Design Guide consultation, the structure of the document
      (including the Toolkit), waste storage implications and guidance related
      to Bring Sites. The Councils have suggested the following changes in
      relation to these concerns:

         changes to reflect the revised content of the Minerals and Waste
          Core Strategy policies CS16 and CS28;
         it is proposed to make the Toolkit a pull out sheet which directs
          readers to relevant parts of the RECAP Waste Management Design
          Guide. This will make the Design Guide and Toolkit more user
          friendly and accessible, particularly for those not familiar with waste
          management issues;
         revisions to make it clear that the completion of the Design
          Standards Checklist is a requirement for all residential and
          commercial developments, and that completion of the Assessment
          Criteria is only relevant to residential developments where the
          provision of waste storage compounds and Bring Sites is required;
         greater emphasis within the Design Guide regarding the need for
          developers to discuss waste management issues with the relevant
          local authorities as part of pre-application discussions;
         revisions of the Toolkit (Assessment Criteria) so that reference is
          made to the protection of historic as well as natural environment in
          the context of waste management infrastructure;
         amendment of Table 4.1 – Waste Storage Capacity to emphasise
          the role of the Waste Collection Authority in determining the number
          and type of waste storage containers required for a particular
          development;
         greater emphasis to the urban design principles within the Design
          Guide;
         deletion of Appendix C – Current Local Authority Collection
          Frequencies as waste collection frequencies within Cambridgeshire
          and Peterborough will be subject to further change in the future;
         greater clarity in relation to the preparation of documents required
          from developers and the information related to Bring Sites held by
          the Waste Collection Authorities;
         a revised definition of Bring Sites within the Design Guide;
         clearer guidance on how developer contributions for Bring Sites will
          be identified and sought by the relevant local authority.

      Details of the representations and the Councils full responses are set
      out in the following schedule.




                                                                                4
4.0   NEXT STEPS

4.1   As a result of the representations received on the first public
      consultation consequential amendments are being proposed to the
      RECAP Guide. These relate to key elements of the Guide, including
      the basis on which contributions will be sought for waste infrastructure.
      These changes are significant, and it is therefore considered necessary
      to undertake a further round of public consultation on the RECAP
      Waste Management Design Guide.

4.2   Following the second round of consultation any final amendments will
      be proposed, so the Councils can then consider the adoption of the
      SPD. It is anticipated this will take place in late 2011 / early 2012.

5.0   SCHEDULES OF REPRESENTATIONS & RESPONSES

5.1   The following schedule provides a summary of the representations
      made, and how they have been considered. It also includes any
      changes which are suggested in response to the points raised. At the
      end of the schedule two tables and a map related to the HRC
      methodology and further work carried out by the County’s Waste
      Management Team are shown in relation to response MWRECAP36.

                                           clear. It should also be made clear that the Guide is
                                           not meant to replace any existing planning
                                           requirements but to support them. Within the SPD
                                           there are many cross references, which would be
                                           clearer if a page number and/or paragraph number
                                           were included, making it easier to find your way
                                           around the document. There is also a lot of repetition
                                           in the document which is not necessary and detracts
                                           from the readability of the document.

                                             Sheets A, B and C are confusing and laboured, and
                                             contain a great deal of repetition. In their current
                                             forms, these sheets could confuse both developers
                                             and officers dealing with planning applications on

                                             developers to fill in Sheet B, thereby cutting out the
                                             duplication in Sheet A. The process of completing the

                                             realised. The supporting information submitted
                                             alongside the toolkit must be proportionate to the
                                             development in question, and this should be clarified
                                             in this section. Clarity is also required as to whether
                                             the toolkit is applicable to all scales/types of
                                             development. It may also be useful to add a further
                                             reference to the importance of pre-application
