Minerals planning policy
Land use planning policies for minerals development are set out in Chapter 14 of Planning Policy Wales. These policies cover the short and long term future use and safeguarding of mineral deposits.
This guidance should be taken into account by mineral planning authorities in the preparation of their development plans. It may be material to decisions on individual planning applications, including mineral review applications, and will be taken into account by the Welsh Ministers and by Planning Inspectors in the determination of called-in applications and appeals in Wales. Related matters are prescribed in regulations.
The term "Mineral Planning Authority" is that given to any of the authorities with responsibility for planning control over mineral working and relates to each local authority and each national park authority in Wales.
Policy guidance for marine aggregates is not included in Planning Policy Wales.
