Local Aggregates Assessment (LAA)
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires minerals planning authorities to plan for a steady and adequate supply of aggregates. To achieve this consideration must be given to the outcomes of annually-prepared Local Aggregates Assessments (LAAs).
The LAA for Gloucestershire is made up of the following: -
- information about the supply of aggregates and remaining reserves from mineral sites within Gloucestershire;
- an analysis of future aggregate supply options affecting the county and a review of future demand; and
- conclusions and recommendations for minerals planning purposes.
The 8th version LAA covers the period between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2018. It has been subject to targeted consultation with key parties including; all adjacent minerals planning authorities and the South West Aggregate Working Party (SW-AWP).
All previous versions and an initial baseline data report, published in 2013 can be found on the Evidence base for the Minerals Local Plan for Gloucestershire page.
