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.

Following earlier consultations on a draft replacement plan in 2016 and Site Options and Draft Policy Framework in 2014 the plan has now been published under Town and County Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.  

This publication version of the plan has 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.

All consultation documents from the Publication stage 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?

Following publication of the document the Council intends to submit the plan along with representations received to the Planning Inspectorate for independent examination. 

 How can I get involved?

If you wish your views on the MLP to be considered by the planning inspector at examination it is essential that you participate in the Publication consultation.  If you wish to be notified of the plan’s progression please contact us at  m&wplans@gloucestershire.gov.uk so that you can be added to our consultation database.
