Minerals, waste and county council development planning

As minerals and waste planning authority for Essex, we must ensure that:

  • there are enough minerals for construction to meet the needs of Essex
  • we provide sites for facilities to meet the waste needs of Essex

We're also responsible for determining planning applications for land and buildings that we own, such as schools.

See our planning applications and minerals and waste planning policy sections to make an application or view a policy.
