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 previous consultations page.
The most recent formal consultation on the Minerals Local Plan Submission Draft document closed on Tuesday 29 March 2016. Comments received after this date cannot be accepted in line with national guidance.
All the representations submitted to the Submission Draft consultation document can be viewed on the interactive consultation webpage.
All the representations received will be considered before approval is sought from Full Council to submit the Minerals Local Plan and supporting documents to the Secretary of State in advance of an examination in public led by an independent inspector.
The Evidence Base and further information
A wide range of technical studies and assessments have been carried out as part of preparing the new Minerals Local Plan and make up what is referred to as the evidence base for the plan. We have also prepared further information and a number of background papers on specific topics.
