New Minerals Local Plan

View exhibition dates

The current adopted Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan is out of date and work is now underway to draft a replacement plan.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 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 of consultation known as the ‘Issues and Options’ was completed in January 2018 with the feedback from the consultation used to inform the ongoing development of the minerals plan.

Draft Minerals Local Plan consultation

The next stage in the development of the Minerals Local Plan is the publication of the Draft Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan consultation document. The document sets out the draft list of site allocations to meet expected demand over the plan period along with planning policies against which future minerals development would be assessed against. The public consultation will seek views on the suitability of the proposed site allocations as well as the plan policies. Consultation will take place between July 27 and September 28 2018.

If you would like to make representations on the Minerals Local Plan, we would encourage you do so on online using our interactive online consultation system.
