Minerals Planning Policy

It is a national requirement that the County Council should have planning policies for the "winning and working" of minerals. The Council's current policies are set out in the "saved" policies of the adopted Minerals Local Plan. These policies are dated and need replacing, and therefore the Council is preparing a new Minerals Local Plan for Worcestershire and a Mineral Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD).

We are consulting on the emerging Minerals Local Plan and Mineral Site Allocations DPD from 17 December 2018 to 8 February 2019.
