“Years of hard work have gone into preparing and consulting on this important document…”


The press release from DCC continues:
... and it’s pleasing that the Devon Minerals Plan has now been adopted. This extensive work has helped shape the plan we have today. All mineral development will need to comply with the plan, which aims for the county’s minerals to be managed sustainably to support economic growth in Devon and contribute to global supply of key industrial minerals.
But if that really is the case - that all mineral development will need to comply with the plan - why is Aggregate Industries bothering with a planning application for a 2.5 million mile haulage scheme - the details of which are about to land in our inbox?
