Warwickshire Minerals Plan (2017 – 2032)

** THIS CONSULTATION IS NOW CLOSED **

Consultation under Regulation 18 Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012

 

The Minerals Preferred Option and Policies consultation commenced on Monday 19th October and HAS NOW BEEN EXTENDED TO 5.00PM ON MONDAY JANUARY 4TH 2016

Following the consultation on the Minerals Core Strategy – Revised Spatial Options and a call for sites the County Council has produced a draft plan for consultation: Warwickshire Minerals Plan – Preferred Option and Policies.

Please click HERE to access our online Consultation Portal where you will find the Draft Minerals Plan – Preferred Option and Policies and the opportunity to comment. 

The new Warwickshire Minerals Plan will set out the locational strategy for where new mineral development should be located and the policies that will guide new minerals development during the period 2017 to 2032. It will also identify suitable land for the working of sand and gravel.

When it is eventually adopted, it will replace the ‘saved policies’ in the Minerals Local Plan (1995).

The new draft Plan is supported by other documents including a Local Aggregates Assessment and a Sustainability Appraisal Report that assesses the sustainability of the draft Plan and the alternatives that we considered in its preparation.

You can inspect a copy of the documents at the County Council’s Offices, Shire Hall in Warwick, at the principal offices of the 5 local District and Borough Councils and at all the libraries in Warwickshire.

The County Council invites you to comment on the draft Plan and the other related documents. Comments can be made via the consultation portal or in writing to Planning and Development Group, Communities Group, Warwickshire County Council, Shire Hall, Warwick CV34 4SX.  Comments should arrive no later than 5.00pm on Friday 4th December 2015.
