Joint Minerals Local Plan

Joint minerals local planAlthough mineral reserves are no longer extracted within Hull, we still have to produce a minerals local plan. Rather like the waste local plan, we have chosen to do this jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and it has acted as the lead authority on the plan's preparation. Hull is important for landing and handling imported and sea-dredged aggregates and for handling secondary/recycled aggregates.

The draft Joint Mineral Local Plan (JMLP), which covers the period 1996 to 2006, seeks to ensure minerals are extracted in a controlled way that respects the local environment whilst providing for the needs of industry. The identification of future areas for mineral extraction and the provision of policies to assess planning applications for extraction is a complex process, involving a long period of public consultation.

The JMLP builds on the work that was undertaken for the Humberside Minerals Local Plan and published for consultation in spring 1995. It includes new government guidance, with up-to-date information on minerals within the region and locally. It has been produced in accordance with guidance in PPG12 (Development Plans and Regional Planning Guidance) and MPG1 (General Considerations and the Development Plan System).

Following the first and second deposit draft stages of the plan, a public inquiry was held in March 2002. The plan was modified following the inspector's report, and adopted in April 2004.

The Joint Minerals Local Plan will be replaced by the Joint Minerals development plan document (DPD).
