This MPG gives guidance on the orders and effects of the Town and Country Planning (Compensation for Restrictions on Mineral Working and Mineral Waste Depositing) Regulations 1997. Sites with planning permission for mineral working or depositing mineral waste must be reviewed every 15 years.
Compensation is payable if new conditions, other than for restoration and aftercare, restrict working rights. Minerals planning authorities have powers to revoke, modify or discontinue mineral working in cases of urgency or default.
This guidance shows how the compensation payable in such cases has been brought into line with that payable as a result of the periodic reviews. The guidance describes the order-making powers available and the compensation applicable.
