8.1    Calculating the Provision of Sand and Gravel

With the Local Aggregate Assessment providing greater certainty regarding aggregate provision over the Plan period, we can now propose an emerging policy for the provision of sand and gravel.


Draft Emerging Policy for the Provision of Sand and Gravel

Derbyshire and Derby will maintain provision for the production of land won sand and gravel at a rate of 1.09 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 seven years of planning permissions for the extraction of sand and gravel.
