Previous consultation and engagement

Find out how we have engaged with stakeholders on the new Minerals Local Plan.

January-March 2017

The Proposed Submission Draft Plan was published between 16 January and 13 March 2017, prior to its submission to allow for representations to be made on its ‘soundness’ and legal compliance.

These representations will be considered by an independent Planning Inspector at a Public Examination in September 2017.

April-June 2016

We published the draft Joint Minerals Local Plan for public consultation for a nine-week period between 14 April and 17 June 2016.

We have collated all comments received into a single document.

We held an exhibition about Ham Farm near Steyning on 23 May 2016, and have produced responses to some of the frequently asked questions about this site. This has been updated to reflect the latest evidence, following the consultation from April-June 2016.

July/August 2014

To support engagement on the background papers and the Mineral Sites Study we held two events to:

  • check information was up to date to ensure our understanding of minerals issues was correct
  • identify any potential problems or concerns relating to the working of minerals in West Sussex.

First event

This was for district, borough, town and parish councils and other organisations that have an interest in minerals' planning issues in West Sussex. 

Second event

This was for mineral site operators, industry representatives, landowners, statutory consultees and neighbouring mineral planning authorities.

Outcomes from the events

We considered all the feedback from these events as part of the plan-making process.

The outcome reports for the Background Paper engagement and Minerals Site Study engagement are available:

January 2014

We contacted stakeholders, communities and interested parties with information about the new Minerals Local Plan, proposed timetable and some answers to frequently asked questions.
