As part of the examination of the Minerals Safeguarding Development Plan Document, a hearing was held on Wednesday 10 January 2018.

As a result of the hearing, the Council is preparing a Schedule of Main Modifications for consultation, which will include consideration of wider Mineral Safeguarding Areas around mineral infrastructure sites.

The Council will consult with the minerals industry / mineral operators for a two week period from Thursday 8th February to 23rd February 18 to get their initial views on the revised Infrastructure MSA maps and the criteria based assessment.

After the Council has received the industry’s views it will then seek formal consultation over a 6 week period.  The timeframe for this will depend on the responses received to the two week consultation and whether any further discussions with industry are required.  It is currently anticipated that consultation on the Main Modifications will take place in Spring 2018.
