New Minerals Local Plan
The current adopted Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan is out of date and work is now underway to draft a replacement plan. The new Minerals Local Plan will cover the period 2016 to 2036 and will set out how much mineral we are likely to need, site specific allocations to meet identified demand and a range of planning policies against which future minerals development will be assessed.
The first stage in the development of the new minerals plan, known as the ‘Issues and Options’ was undertaken between the 20 of November 2017 and the 14 January 2018. This document sets out the key issues that are expected to arise over the plan period and potential options to meet them.
Sustainability Scoping report
Consultation was also undertaken on the Sustainability Appraisal scoping report over the same period.
We are currently logging all the comments made during the consultation period, and once this has been completed they will be available to view, via our interactive online consultation system. The comments will then be analysed and these will help to shape the development of the new plan.
The next stage of the consultation on the Minerals Local Plan will be the draft plan stage expected in summer 2018.
Call for sites exercise
As part of the Minerals Local Plan evidence gathering process, a call for sites exercise has been completed. This exercise invited the minerals industry and other relevant parties to put forward quarry proposals they wished to be considered for allocation in the emerging Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan.
A series of summary documents have been drafted based on the proposals put forward by the minerals industry, however it is important to note that the information has not been endorsed by, or reflect the views of the County Council.
As part of the development of the Minerals Local Plan, a range of site specific assessments will be undertaken. This assessment work will then inform the identification of site specific allocations included in the plan, and will ensure that the sites are deliverable, realistic and achievable and can contribute to providing a steady and adequate supply of minerals over the plan period.
