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.
The second stage of consultation on the Minerals Local Plan Preferred Approach closed on 18 December 2013. We would like to thank everyone who responded to the consultation. If you would like to view the comments made you may do so by looking for responses to each question via the interactive Local Development Framework for Minerals Local Plan.
