Preparation of the Minerals Local Plan
The preparation of the Worcestershire Minerals Local Plan commenced in 2012. The Council undertook five periods of formal consultation during the development of the plan, prior to the submission of the plan for independent examination, and published a suite of background documents.
The Publication Version of the Minerals Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State in December 2019 and the Secretary of State appointed two independent Planning Inspectors to undertake an examination in public. The report on the examination of the plan was received in May 2022.
The Council adopted the Minerals Local Plan in July 2022.
