Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0103 - Land south east of Sandy Lane, Barham

Representation ID: 12954

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)


Barham Quarry Extension - The current safeguarding areas are proposed to change to more defined areas. Sand and gravel is a nationally important resource and Suffolk has a sand and gravel sub regional apportionment figure and it is required to plan for sites to meet this apportionment. The minerals safeguarding area (MSA) is an area of potential mineral resource, identified through the best available data from the British Geological Survey. Its purpose is to protect potentially exploitable sand and gravel deposits from being sterilised by development on top of, or adjacent to those deposits. Following guidance in defining this area , the County Council is looking to safeguard all areas of sand and gravel within the county with an additional 250m buffer to prevent sterilisation of the sand and gravel resource by adjacent development.
