Abstract/Summary

This report describes work carried out by the British Geological Survey on behalf of West Sussex County Council to delineate its Minerals Safeguarding Areas and Mineral Consultation Areas. This is in accordance with the methodology outlined in “A guide to mineral safeguarding in England” (McEvoy et al., 2007), which is in line with the Communities and Local Government document, Mineral Policy Statement 1: Planning and Minerals. This was released in November 2006 and it introduces the obligation on all Mineral Planning Authorities to define Minerals Safeguarding Areas. The work involved the provision of maps showing the extent of individual mineral resources in West Sussex and creating Minerals Safeguarding Areas and Mineral Consultation Areas for each mineral resource. These were provided in digital form for use within a geographical information system.
