Welcome to the Greater Manchester Minerals Plan website. This website provides key information on the Minerals Plan, including access to documents.

The ten Greater Manchester Authorities; Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan are working together to prepare a joint Minerals Plan (click on any logo at the bottom of this page to visit the authority's website).

The Minerals Plan provides a sound, sub-regional, planning policy framework and a clear guide to minerals operators and the public about:

  • The locations where mineral extraction may take place
  • The safeguarding of sensitive environmental features and of mineral resources with potential for future extraction
  • All aspects of environmental and resource protection including the sustainable transportation of minerals.

Further information about the Minerals Plan can be found on the Background Menu Page.

The latest news about the Minerals Plan can be found on the Latest News Menu Page.

The adopted Minerals Plan can be found here > MineralsPlanDocs or via the DocumentLibrary.
