Towards a Minerals Local Plan for Derbyshire and Derby

Towards a Strategy for Aggregate Crushed Rock

Emerging Approach - Provision Figures

Emerging Policy for the Provision of Aggregate Crushed Rock

Derbyshire and Derby will maintain provision for the production of land won aggregate crushed rock at a rate of 7.27 mtpa throughout the Plan period.     This figure will be kept under review and revised if necessary in accordance with the Local Aggregate Assessment.

The MPAs will maintain a landbank of at least 10 years of planning permissions for the extraction of aggregate grade crushed rock.


7.1     As set out above, the LAA has now provided greater clarity over the levels of provision for aggregate crushed rock over the Plan period.  The following emerging policy can now, therefore, be proposed relating to the overall provision of aggregate crushed rock.
