Minerals Plan: Towards a Strategy for Sand & Gravel

Issue 1: The Local Aggregate Assessment

The new National Planning Policy Framework requires Mineral Planning Authorities to plan for a steady and adequate supply of aggregates by determining their own levels of aggregate provision.  This should be set out in a Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA).  It sets out that this should be based on a rolling average of the previous 10 years sales data and other relevant information, where appropriate.  From the information available, we have determined that Derby and Derbyshire will have to find sites to provide a further 18 million tonnes of sand and gravel to 2030.

Q1: The Local Aggregate Assessment

Please read the Local Aggregate Assessment and tell us what you think.  Do you agree with the approach we have taken, which results in the figure of 18 million tonnes or do you think the LAA should use an approach which results in a figure closer to the 10 year average of 1.28 mt per annum, which would amount to around 14 million tonnes over the plan period to 2030?
