New Minerals Local Plan

The current adopted Derby and Derbyshire Minerals Local Plan is out of date and work is underway to prepare a replacement plan.

The new Minerals Local Plan will cover the period to 2036. It will set out how much mineral we are likely to need, site specific allocations to meet identified demand and a range of planning policies against which future minerals development will be assessed.

The latest stage of public consultation on the full new Minerals Local Plan ran for an 8 week period from 19 March 2018 to 18 May 2018. The documents from this consultation are attached to this page. Feedback from the consultation period will inform the ongoing development of the Minerals Local Plan.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) introduced the requirement for Mineral Planning Authorities to undertake a Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA).

The purpose of the LAA is to identify local apportionment figures for all aggregate minerals based on past production and other local considerations.

These are prepared on an annual basis.  The latest LAA can be found below.
