Emerging Minerals Local Plan for Gloucestershire (2018 - 2032)
Gloucestershire County Council is replacing its minerals local plan, which has been the blueprint for mineral working in the county and has guided decisions on planning applications for minerals development since 2003.
Consultation on a draft replacement plan occurred between 29th September 2016 and 24th November 2016. This brought together all of the evidence collected by the Council so far including comments made during previous consultations. It set out a comprehensive document with a long-term vision, strategy, objectives, policies and site allocations.
In addition, response reports to the previous minerals plan consultation, which took place in Summer 2014 have been produced. These can be found on the Evidence Base for the Minerals Local Plan for Gloucestershire page along with the evidence base to support the draft MLP and earlier consultation stages.
What happens next?
The council received a large number of responses to the draft MLP consultation and these responses are currently being considered. The council has prepared a development scheme which identifies that the next consultation stage will happen sometime between July and September 2017. This stage will be publication of the document the Council intends to submit to the Planning Inspectorate for independent examination. It will also include the council's responses to the representations received at the last (draft MLP) consultation stage.
How can I get involved?

If you have previously made a response to the MLP you will automatically be notified of the next consultation stage.
