Adopted Minerals Local Plan

County of Hereford and Worcester Minerals Local Plan 1997

The adopted County of Hereford and Worcester Minerals Local Plan 1997  sets out the Council's planning policies for the extraction and restoration of minerals sites within the County with a focus on the extraction of aggregates.
Certain policies contained in the adopted Minerals Local Plan no longer form part of the statutory "Development Plan" for Worcestershire. The Secretary of State made the decision of which policies should be "saved" under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. Those policies not listed in the Direction expired on 27th September 2007 and should not be taken into account in the preparation of planning documents or in the determination of planning applications.
