The Cheshire Minerals Development Framework (prior to 2009)
Prior to Local Government Re-organisation in Cheshire in April 2009, the former Cheshire County Council began preparation on a Minerals Development Framework (MDF). Following public consultation, two planning documents were produced identifying mineral issues and options for Cheshire in relation to strategic matters ('The Core Strategy') and site specific matters ('Site Specific Policies and Allocations'). These documents are available to download below.
Please note that work on the Cheshire Minerals Development Framework was discontinued following the formation of Cheshire East Council in April 2009. These documents have been made available here for information purposes only and any references to Cheshire County Council and the Cheshire Minerals Development Framework are no longer valid.
