Greater Essex Local Aggregate Assessment

3 December 2018

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires Mineral Planning Authorities (MPAs) to produce a Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA) every year. The role of the LAA is to aid in the determination of the amount of mineral provision required, and to monitor this supply, to ensure that a steady and adequate supply of minerals is provided throughout the period covered by a Minerals Local Plan (MLP).

These Local Aggregate Assessments cover the administrative areas of Essex, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock. Information relating to these three administrative areas is amalgamated due to the few workings taking place in Thurrock, which creates issues around commercial confidentiality, and the absence of mineral working in Southend-on-Sea. Whilst data is amalgamated, the Plan Area pursuant to the Essex Minerals Local Plan (2014) covers Essex only.  Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock have their own Local Plans relevant to their own administrative areas.
