Minerals and Waste

Minerals and Waste


We are a Mineral planning authority and are responsible for managing the extraction and safeguarding of mineral resources.

The purpose of the Minerals Local Plan (PDF 9.53 MB), adopted September 2012, is to provide a framework for minerals extraction through site allocation and safeguarding of mineral resources. This will enable the borough to continue contributing to the supply of minerals to meet the anticipated needs of the London economy in a sustainable manner. It will be used alongside other planning policies when considering minerals development and/or development on minerals safeguarded sites.

In Redbridge aggregates are the only mineral presently being worked. We work with the London Aggregates Working Party to monitor the supply and demand for aggregates, rocks and building material to be used in construction.


We are a partner of the East London Waste Authority, a Statutory Waste Disposal Authority which is responsible for the disposal of waste from the London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge. Household waste is collected by the individual boroughs.

The Joint Waste Development Plan Document (PDF 4.60 MB), adopted February 2012, sets a strategic framework to manage waste across the London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge between 2011 and 2021, including the identification and safeguarding of waste disposal facilities. It will be used alongside other planning policies when considering the development of waste sites.
