Emerging Minerals Local Plan

Worcestershire County Council received the Inspectors’ Report on the Examination of the Worcestershire Minerals Local Plan on 6th May 2022. This concludes the independent examination of the MLP. See “Minerals Local Plan: Where we are now ” for further information and next steps.

The emerging Minerals Local Plan will guide how much and what minerals we need to be able to supply, where minerals should be extracted, how sites should be worked and how they should be "restored" when working has finished and how minerals development should protect and enhance Worcestershire's people and places. Once it is adopted it will replace the existing minerals policies in the adopted Minerals Local Plan and will be part of the Development Plan for Worcestershire, to be used to make decisions about planning applications for mineral extraction, processing and restoration in the county.
