Minerals Local Plan for Gloucestershire
Minerals Local Plan for Gloucestershire (2018 - 2032)
A blueprint for minerals development throughout the county over the coming years.
The Minerals Local Plan for Gloucestershire will provide the local policy framework to guide decisions on planning applications for minerals development for at least the next 15 years. This includes the working of minerals from quarries or pits, or the use of on-site processing plant and machinery necessary to turn raw materials into saleable products.
The adopted Gloucestershire Minerals Local Plan (1997 - 2006) has provided the local policy framework since 2003 and will continue to do so until the emerging plan has been completed.
A review of the adopted Gloucestershire Minerals Local Plan (1997 - 2006) is well underway. A new plan has now reached an advanced stage. It has been submitted to the Secretary of State and will shortly be examined by an appointed planning inspector. The intention is for the plan to successfully progress through the examination stage and achieve adoption before the end of 2019.
A detailed three-year project timetable for the Minerals Local Plan can be found within the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme.
