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).

The Publication Version Consultation on the Minerals Local Plan under Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended) is open from 19 August 2019 to 30 September 2019. Find out more information see Emerging Minerals Local Plan: Where we are now.
