Agenda item

Response to Central & Eastern Berkshire Joint Minerals and Waste Plan (Regulation 18) Consultation: Sand and Gravel Provision and Operator Performance

Minutes:

The Planning Policy Lead Officer considered a report that sought agreement for the Council’s response to the last consultation on the Central and Eastern Berkshire Joint Minerals and Waste Plan which was focused upon sand and gravel provision and a new policy for taking into account operator performance. 

 

The Officer summarised the background to the consultation and key issues for Slough.  It was noted that there was a shortage of mineral sites across the area and the plan proposed an area for gravel extraction on a strip of land between Horton Brook and Poyle Quarry south of Colnbrook.  After due consideration, the Committee agreed the Council’s response as detailed in section 5 of the report.

 

Resolved –  That the proposed representations to the “Central and Eastern Berkshire Joint Minerals and Waste Plan – Focussed Regulation 18 consultation:  Sand and Gravel Provision and Operator Performance” document set out in paragraphs 5.10 to 5.23 of the report be agreed and submitted to the Councils.
