This page contains documents linked to the preparation of adopted and other documents in the Minerals and Waste Development Framework which are no longer live or up to date.
Mineral background papers
Listed below are the background papers that summarise much of the evidence used to define the Issues and Options set out in the Minerals Local Plan. These cover individual minerals or a strategic planning issue.
Individual mineral background papers can be downloaded in PDF format below. Some of the documents are very large and may take a while to download.
Please note: The following background papers were written before the Government published the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) in March 2012.
The NPPF replaced nearly all the previous Planning Policy Statements(PPS) and Minerals Policy Statements (MPS). The assumptions in the background papers are based on previous guidance and could vary from the current guidance. The background papers are therefore for reference only.
Due to limited staff resources, revised versions of the documents will not be published until the Preferred Approach consultation has been completed.
