Have your Say on Planning for Hampshire's Minerals and Waste (consultation)
17 February - 24 March 2011
This consultation and engagement will allow everyone to comment on the approach to the HMWDF. We will be trying to make sure that we have considered all possible ways of dealing with various minerals and waste issues in Hampshire. The consultation will also discuss the options on geographical location of facilities/development related to the minerals and waste.
Have your Say - Additional Mineral Issues (consultation)
27 June - 15 July 2011
Further consultation to look at an alternative site suggested for sharp sand and gravel extraction, to be worked as an extension to the existing Bramshill Quarry (Yateley Heath Wood) and changes to the boundaries for clay extraction (Selborne brickworks and Michelmersh brickworks).
The results of the consultation will be processed and made a part of the writing of the Plan. Any updates needed to our evidence base will be carried out and the Plan will be revised and written, taking into account the evidence and the results from the engagement.
