Policies (Proposals) Map

Illustrates where minerals and waste site allocations can be found and highlights environmental assets such as the Green Belt and AONB

The Policies (Proposals) map forms part of the development plan which is used to determine planning applications for minerals and waste.

The map shows adopted policies from the Minerals Local Plan (2003) and the Waste Core Strategy (2012) including:

  • Waste Core Strategy Strategic Allocations (as set out in the adopted Waste Core Strategy)
  • Minerals Consultation Area
  • Minerals Local Plan Allocations (preferred areas)
  • Various environmental constraints (including Green Belt, AONB, SSSI etc.)

Transitional arrangements

The preferred areas within the adopted Minerals Local Plan have been saved under transitional arrangements and will remain part of the Development Plan for Gloucestershire until formally replaced by the Minerals Core Strategy.

These are regulatory arrangements put in place to manage the change from Development Plans to Development Frameworks. Development Plan Policies adopted prior to the new Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act (2004) are to be "saved" for a period of at least three years from the enactment of the Act (Sept 2004) or for a longer period until replaced, where agreed by the Secretary of State. Where Development Plan Policies have been adopted after the Act, these shall be "saved" for a period of at least three years from adoption or for a longer period until replaced, where agreed by the Secretary of State. Full details of transitional arrangements can be viewed under the The Town and Country Planning (Transitional Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2004.

  • It is accepted that the GIS data is provided as is, with all faults
    It is also accepted that the GIS data accessed may have a number of errors which may include but are not
    limited to the following types of errors:
  • Spatial errors whereby the areas depicted by these maps are approximately, and are not necessarily accurate
    to surveying or engineering standards - X/Y co-ordinates may be in error by several metres or more.
  • Registration errors whereby the GIS data layers may not overlay each other correctly.- Attribute errors whereby
    database information may be incorrect- Currency errors whereby GIS data layers, databases and documents
    may not be the most current available or may not depict the specified time. All data is subject to constant change.
    Data input lags real-world changes by varying periods of time.
  • Completeness errors whereby data may be missing or data may be included that does not belong
  • Project or topographic distortion errors whereby all map projections including the Ordnance Survey National
    Grid upon which the maps are based, introduce distortion by representing the irregular shape of the earth's
    surface on flat maps. This affects feature shapes and map distances.
