Mineral Sites Plan

Mineral Sites Plan Pre-Submission Draft Front Cover_December_2017

You can comment on the Mineral Sites Plan Pre-Submission Draft until 31 January 2018.

The Mineral Sites Plan is a document which will accompany the Minerals Strategy 2014, and which will identify sites for mineral extraction to meet national, regional and local needs. 

Once adopted, the Mineral Sites Plan will allocate suitable sites for the future quarrying of sand and gravel, building stones and ball clay to meet development requirements.

Mineral Sites Plan Pre-Submission Draft

We have published the Pre-Submission Draft, which is the final draft version of the Mineral Sites Plan.  

The document has been split into six parts for ease of download.  The Submission Policies Map is a separate document.  

All these documents can be downloaded from the table of Submission Documents below.

Individual Site Assessments can be viewed in the Site Assessments section of the table below.

 

Public Consultation:

From 1 December 2017 to 31 January 2018, we are inviting people to comment on the Plan's legal compliance and 'soundness' - whether it is considered to have been positively prepared and whether it is considered to be: justified, effective and consistent with national policy.

The Plan will then be submitted to the Secretary of State and will be subject to a public examination with an independent planning inspector, likely to be late Spring 2018.

The Plan includes specific sites, allocated for the development of mineral extraction.  The Mineral Sites Plan will accompany the Minerals Strategy, adopted in May 2014, and which contains policies against which planning applications are determined. 

The consultation of the Pre-submission draft of the Mineral Sites Plan is the final opportunity to make representations before the Plan is submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, during early 2018.
