Minerals Policy Statement 1: Planning and Minerals (DCLG, November 2006) requires all Mineral Planning Authorities to define Mineral Safeguarding Areas (MSA’s). This report describes work carried out by the British Geological Survey on behalf of Shropshire County Council and Telford & Wrekin Council to delineate Mineral Safeguarding Areas in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. The report uses the methodology outlined in “A guide to mineral safeguarding in England” (McEvoy et al., 2007). Maps showing the extent of individual mineral resources in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin have been prepared by the BGS. Minerals Safeguarding Areas have then been defined for each mineral resource. This data has been provided in digital form for use with a geographical information system.
