Minerals and waste

Local plans

The current Minerals Plan for Berkshire is the Replacement Minerals Local Plan (RMLP) which was adopted in 1995. Alterations were subsequently adopted in 1997 and 2001. The Waste Local Plan (WLP) for Berkshire was adopted in December 1998.

A number of policies in the Minerals and the Waste Local Plans are saved until they are replaced by national or local minerals and waste policies.  Each unitary authority in Berkshire is now responsible for minerals and waste planning in its own area.

The Berkshire Local Aggregates Assessment provides a robust evidence base for minerals planning in Berkshire, including development management decisions, the formulation of planning policy and responding to minerals issues in other local authority areas.

The plans, directions for saved policies from the Secretary of State and 2010's Annual Monitoring Reports can be found below.

This Aggregates Monitoring Report (2013) (PDF document) for the 6 unitary authorities in Berkshire is a monitor on primary aggregates sales from land-won sand and gravel sites and rail depots for 2013, permitted reserves at the sand and gravel sites at the end of 2013, and sales of recycled and secondary materials as aggregate at recycling sites. 

The report includes information on remaining allocations in the Replacement Minerals Local Plan for Berkshire. It also puts the findings in the context of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) (PDF document) and Guidance on the Managed Aggregates Supply System (MASS) (PDF document).
