Local people are being asked for their views on how mineral extraction and waste management is carried out in Lincolnshire.
Lincolnshire County Council is currently preparing the Lincolnshire Minerals and Waste Local Plan. As part of this, it is consulting residents on a document which sets out how the council proposes to guide mineral extraction and waste management development in the county and the criteria against which related planning applications will be considered.
The consultation began on Monday this week and comments from the general public need to be received by 5pm on February 16.
Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Member for Planning, said: “There have been a number of changes to the planning system since we last spoke to local communities about this issue, so it makes sense for us to consult them again.
“We want to make sure that all future mineral extraction and waste management activities are carried out in a sustainable way, protecting both the environment and local communities.”
