Minerals Planning Policy

We are consulting on proposed main modifications to the emerging Minerals Local Plan. The consultation has been restarted after rectifying a technical issue with some of the online mapping data and will now run from Tuesday 31 August 2021 to 5pm on Tuesday 12 October 2021. See Emerging Minerals Local Plan Examination in Public page.

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).
