Essex County Council
Since 2022 we have been providing dedicated support to the Essex County Council Minerals team to assist with the review of the Minerals Plan (adopted in 2014). Our support primarily involves project management and critical friend advice.
We are project planning the review of the Minerals Plan by producing a project plan, overseeing the tasks of the Minerals Team, overseeing the commissioning of consultants, and estimating budgets for the production of the Minerals Plan and associated evidence base documents.
Critical Friend Support
We are providing critical friend support in relation to the drafting of policies for the Minerals Plan, the production of topic papers outlining and justifying the policy approach, and evidence base production.
The work is currently ongoing and Essex County Council is preparing to publish a draft of the Minerals Plan for Regulation 18 consultation.
