The new Joint Minerals Plan will replace the existing Joint Minerals Local Plan which was adopted in January 2004 and provides minerals planning policies for Hull and the East Riding.
When complete, the new Joint Minerals Plan will include:
- a detailed policy framework against which applications for minerals development will be assessed
- defined minerals safeguarding areas to help prevent viable reserves from being sterilised by non-mineral surface development
- allocations for future mineral workings necessary to provide for the area's future needs to 2026
- policies to help safeguard important minerals transport infrastructure such as wharves.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is leading on the production of the Joint Minerals Plan with Hull City Council and full information about the production of the plan is available on their website
