Emerging Minerals Local Plan: Background documents

Introduction to the background documents

The Council is preparing a new Minerals Local Plan which will set out how we plan for mineral extraction in Worcestershire – guiding where minerals should be extracted, how sites should be worked and "restored" when working has finished and how minerals development should protect and enhance Worcestershire's people and places.

A set of background documents has been prepared which set out evidence on which the emerging Minerals Local Plan is based.
