Issues Discussion Paper - Consultation
A Minerals Issues Discussion Paper has been
prepared to help us determine how sustainable minerals development
in Cheshire East should be achieved. It is intended
to provide a starting point for any organisation or individual
to offer their views on strategic minerals planning issues as part
of the Local Plan process. The paper
performs the following roles:
- Provides a general background to minerals in
Cheshire East; the types found, where and how they are extracted,
and what they are used for;
- Identifies key existing and emerging national
planning policy and guidance and other sources of information
relevant to minerals planning;
- Identifies the most recent evidence available on
minerals and mineral operations in Cheshire East; and
- Identifies the key strategic issues for minerals
development planning in Cheshire East and asks how best the Local
Plan should address them.
Consultation on the Minerals Issues Discussion Paper took place
from 2nd March until 2nd April 2012. Although the
consultation has now ended, the documents are still available on
this page for reference.
A report of consultation has been
prepared summarising the comments received and is
available to download below.
