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.)
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.
