New Minerals Local Plan

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 it will cover 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 public consultation stages which can be viewed on the consultations page

Submission draft consultation

A report on the Minerals Local Plan Submission Draft consultation is expected to be discussed at the County Councils Environment and Sustainability Committee on 4 January 2016, followed by a report to Full Council on 14 January to seek approval to undertake public consultation.

If approved by Full Council, consultation is expected to commence in February for a six week period.

Any representations received before the official consultation commences, unfortunately, cannot be accepted and will be returned.
