Please select one of the following statements:
  • Support the policy allocation with amendments (provide details in the comments box below)

It is noted that a minerals safeguarding area is identified on the policy maps north of Nempnett Thrubwell (identified as Freemans Quarry off the A38 near Bristol Airport within the local plan policy SP12). Within this area a preferred minerals working area and areas of search for minerals have been identified. Given the proximity to the boundary B&NES would request further dialogue and engagement on the approach to minerals working.
