Minerals Core Strategy

Find out about the Minerals Core Strategy, which forms part of the Suffolk Minerals and Waste Development Framework.

What is the Minerals Core Strategy?

We formally adopted the Minerals Core Strategy (incorporating Development Control Policies) at its Full Council meeting on 25 September 2008.

The Core Strategy replaces the policies contained within the Minerals Local Plan. It outlines the vision, objectives and a Spatial Strategy indicating where, what and how much new minerals development can take place in Suffolk up until 2021.

It also contains a range of Development Control policies for Mineral planning proposals that will inform future planning decisions.

All minerals development proposals in Suffolk should accord with the Core Strategy.
