Current Consultation

3.1       The 2015/16 “Towards a Minerals Plan” consultation identifies a range of potential strategies for how the MPAs might make provision for an adequate and steady supply of minerals in the Plan area.

3.2       The strategy for most minerals will probably take the form of criterion based policies as there are no specific national or local targets to be met for their production. For aggregate minerals there are production targets and this will require more detailed monitoring, through the Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA).
