The new Minerals Local Plan will set out the County Council's overall approach to future minerals provision in Nottinghamshire up to 2030 and replace the Minerals Local Plan adopted in 2005. Key issues covered by the plan include:

  • the amount of minerals we will need to produce to meet demand
  • the location of future sites
  • the social and environmental impacts of mineral working.

The plan has been through a series of informal and formal public consultation stages as part of its preparation and these can be viewed on the previous consultations page.
