You may not have realised it, but West Sussex County Council and the South Downs National Park Authority are working in partnership to prepare a new Joint Minerals Local Plan for West Sussex. This will replace the existing Minerals Local Plan (2003). The Council is now consulting on the content of the Draft Plan for a nine week period which will end on Friday 17 June 2016. You will find attached below a letter providing further details of the consultation and how you can comment.
The documents can be viewed at West Sussex libraries and County, District or Borough Council offices, including the South Downs National Park office in Midhurst. You can also view the consultation documents, the draft Plan and information on how to respond online at www.westsussex.gov.uk/mwdf.
