Policies which we take into consideration for planning applications for minerals development and when deciding such applications.

The policies were due to expire on the 27 September 2007, but the government has allowed some to be extended, or 'saved', until policies being developed in the minerals and waste development framework supersede them.

The 'saved' policies will continue to form part of the statutory development plan and provide the local policy framework for development control decisions until they are replaced by ones in the minerals and waste plan.

The original minerals local plan is displayed below, but reference to 'saved' policies must be made when considering future development.
