A report seeking approval of the submission of draft modifications to the Minerals Plan to the Examination Inspector and to progress the next steps towards adoption.
Cabinet Portfolio Holder – Councillor Wallace Redford
In the absence of Councillor Wallace Redford, Councillor Peter Butlin (Deputy Leader, Finance and Property) explained that this report set out the remaining issues being addressed for the Inspector particularly in terms of a plan for extraction at appropriate sites with minimum impact on residents and habitats.
That Cabinet authorises the Strategic Director for Communities, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Transport and Planning, to:
1. Propose draft Main Modifications to the submitted Warwickshire Minerals Plan to the Inspector and carry out any necessary public consultation on them;
2. Take any other steps which he considers necessary or desirable to assist the Inspector to conclude his Examination and to enable Council to adopt a sound and compliant Plan (including making any further decisions as proposed modifications); and
3. Submit the Proposed Plan (together with any recommended modifications) to Council for a decision on adoption.
