The new Minerals Local Plan will set out our overall approach to future minerals provision in Nottinghamshire up to 2030. Key issues will include the amount of mineral we will need to produce to meet demand, the location of future sites and the social and environmental impacts of mineral working.
The plan will need to go through a series of informal and formal public consultation stages and finally an independent examination before it can be adopted by the County Council. A number of informal stages have already been completed and these are listed below:
- Issues and options consultation document - January 2012
- Preferred Approach consultation document - October 2013
- Additional Consultation on Sand and Gravel provision - May 2014
As a result of feedback from the last consultation carried out between May and July 2014, we are now undertaking, a further consultation on revised proposals put forward for a potential sand and gravel quarry at Shelford, near Nottingham. The consultation is being held for an 8 week period until 10 December 2014.

Information panels relating to the consultation will be displayed at ‘The Grange’ in Radcliffe On Trent for two weeks between 20 October and 3 November. Officers from the County Council will be on hand to answer any questions you have on Tuesday 21 October between 12pm and 2pm.
Once the consultation has closed, all comments received will be considered along with those put forward at the earlier Preferred Approach consultation stages. Relevant comments will then be incorporated into a Submission Draft consultation document ready for another public consultation period prior to formal submission of the minerals Local Plan to the Planning Inspectorate for examination and formal adoption.
