Worcestershire County Council Validation Document

02/2010

MPA's representations on the Validation Document  produced by Worcestershire County Council. MPA feels the Validation Document is well intended but it substantially repeats information in DCLG’s The Validation of Planning Applications and several other government advisory and policy documents. It is still potentially useful to applicants but needs substantial editing to reduce it to what the County Council requires locally and then bookmarking it to the other documents, policy and advice already referred to.

Rutland Minerals DPD Submission Document

02/2010

Whilst MPA can support the intention of the policy (i.e. to ensure mineral proposals are sustainable) it is unrealistic to expect every application to meet all of the government’s national objectives for minerals planning (MPS1, para 9). Only some objectives in the list will be applicable to an application for development. For example, securing an adequate and steady supply of minerals is a function of the development plan process, not an individual application.

Newport Local Development Plan 2011 - 2026

02/2010

Whilst MPA generally supports the conclusions of the RTS’s analysis of Newport’s position and the conclusions of the ‘Former Gwent’ Aggregates Safeguarding Study there is no formalised procedure for the redistribution of apportionments, which gives our members cause for concern. Unless there is agreement before the adoption of plans, there will be a risk that unilateral decisions may be taken by some authorities under the erroneous assumption that future agreement with others will be forthcoming, when in fact it may not be.

Lancashire Possible Minerals and Waste Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

01/2010

The MPA supports the selection of MSA Option 1 and therefore the favoured MSA Option. It is important to safeguard the whole deposit since designated areas are not absolute constraints and mineral working could take place in them should the national need tests be satisfied. Despite the possible duplication involved in such designated areas, the MPA believes it is important for local authorities to recognise the significance of safeguarding minerals and taking them into account in all planning decisions whatever the status of the area concerned.
