About the Greater Manchester Joint Waste Development Plan
We teamed up with the other 9 other authorities in Greater Manchester to create a joint waste plan for the whole of Greater Manchester.
The Joint Waste Development Plan outlines the number of new waste management facilities needed in Greater Manchester by 2020.
It also details potential sites across Greater Manchester, including Rochdale borough, where we could build these new facilities.
The plan was adopted on 1 April 2012 and makes up part of the Core Strategy for our Local Plan.
