Surrey Minerals Plan

The Adopted Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD) forms part of the Surrey Minerals Plan and provides strategic policies for minerals, and site specific proposals for the extraction of minerals for the period to 2026. The purpose of the Core Strategy DPD is to ensure that the County Council can meet its requirements for minerals in the most sustainable way, and to set the framework and policies within which future planning applications for mineral development will be considered.

The Core Strategy DPD is supplemented by two further development plan documents, the Surrey Minerals Plan Primary Aggregates DPD and the Aggregates Recycling Joint DPD. These documents identify the preferred areas and sites for primary aggregate extraction and aggregates recycling.

The Surrey Minerals Plan Minerals Site Restoration Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) sets out Surrey County Council's vision of how mineral workings in Surrey should be restored during the period to 2026.
