dc.description.abstractA key aspect of sustainable development is the conservation and safeguarding
 of non-renewable resources, such as minerals, for future generations. The UK is
 endowed with a wide range of indigenous minerals but these natural resources
 are finite. With increased pressure on land-use in the UK, there is a need to
 ensure that these natural resources are not needlessly sterilised by other
 development, leaving insufficient supplies for future generations. Safeguarding
 will also help ensure that the planning system retains the flexibility to identify
 sites which have the least impact on the environment. Safeguarding is the term
 that encompasses the process necessary to ensure that outcome.
 Minerals Policy Statement 1: Planning and minerals, published in November
 2006, aims to prevent unnecessary sterilisation of mineral resources by providing
 national policy for mineral safeguarding. The ‘Guide to mineral safeguarding’ is
 designed to complement this policy which introduces an obligation on all
 Mineral Planning Authorities to define Mineral Safeguarding Areas. Defining
 Mineral Safeguarding Areas carries no presumption that the resource will be
 worked. The guide provides guidance on how current mineral safeguarding
 policy can be complied with and puts forward a relatively simple step-by-step
 methodology for delineating Mineral Safeguarding Areas, together with
 examples of policies through which they would have effect. When linked to
 appropriate local planning policies, Mineral Safeguarding Areas should ensure
 that mineral resources are adequately and effectively considered in making landuse
 planning decisions.
 The guide is intended for use principally by those involved in the preparation of
 mineral development plan documents and in deciding planning applications. It
 will also be of interest to Regional Planning Bodies in the preparation of
 Regional Spatial Strategies. Developers working in areas where the presence of
 a mineral resource may need to be considered may also find this guide useful.
