This report describes work carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) on behalf of the North York Moors National Park Authority to delineate draft Mineral Safeguarding Areas (MSAs), the results of which will be used to undertake a mineral consultation safeguarding exercise. The approach taken is in accordance with the methodology outlined in ‘Mineral safeguarding in England: good practice advice’ (Wrighton et al., 2011). National policy for minerals safeguarding, at the time of the study, is contained within the ‘National Planning Policy Framework’ that was published in March 2012. The work undertaken in this study involved the production of maps showing the extent of mineral resources in the North York Moors National Park and the production of a recommended safeguarding methodology for each mineral resource informed by consultation. This report will be used to inform the establishment of MSAs through minerals planning policy, MSAs themselves are not finalised until relevant planning policy is adopted. Data depicted on the maps have been provided in digital format to the authority for use within a Geographical Information System.
