Minerals sites

Information about the identification of potential future minerals development sites

The Minerals and Waste Local Plan: Part 2 - Site Allocations will identify specific sites for mineral working and other minerals development for the period to 2031, and will set out detailed policies for management of development of those sites. It will follow on from Part 1 of the Plan - the Core Strategy which was adopted in September 2017.

Following the adoption of the Core Strategy, we are now commencing preparation of the Site Allocations plan. Further information and a timetable for preparation of this document are contained in the latest Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (eighth revision) 2017 (pdf format, 596Kb)

All previous work on site options is now being refreshed in the preparation of the Site Allocations plan. We are currently making a renewed call for nominations for sites to be considered for possible allocation in the plan.

Site nomination forms

If you have a site that you would like to be considered for possible allocation, please fill out the nomination form below and return to the minerals and waste policy team at the following address. If you have previously nominated a site, please check that the information we hold is still correct and look at the nomination form to see what further information we may now need you to provide.
