Councils open mineral extraction plans for consultation Magazine

Between now and Monday 21st May the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council are trying to find feedback on their Joint Minerals Local Plan Proposed Submission Document.

The plan sets out detailed policies for East Riding and Hull by which applications for minerals development,?just like quarrying to extract chalk, sand and gravel,?shall be assessed.

Mineral safeguarding areas are defined in the will assist in preventing viable reserves being sterilised by non-mineral surface development. The master plan also sets out a number of allocations for mineral extraction during the plan area.

After the six-week consultation, the documents and all sorts of representations that were received will probably be listed in the Secretary of State for?Housing, Communities and native Government.

The Secretary of State will appoint persistent Planning Inspector which will hold an examination in public places on the plan to consider whether it meets the requirements of legal compliance, the obligation to cooperate and soundness.?The routine, once adopted, will replace the existing Joint Minerals Local Plan that’s adopted in January 2004.
