New Minerals and Waste Local Plan

Minerals and waste planning policy is currently under review.

You can find out more on our Joint Minerals and Waste Plan page.

Replacement Minerals Local Plan (adopted May 2001)

This plan was intended to make sure that minerals were extracted at the right pace throughout the period to the end of 2006, and that there are enough planning permissions for mineral extraction at the end of that period for a further 7 years of extraction (to the end of 2013). The plan also contains a number of development management policies.
