Part 17: Mineral and mining

 
mineral and miningThis section (mineral and mining) gives permitted development rights to providers in the coal, petroleum, mineral and mining industry to undertake certain works.

As the readership of Planning Geek is unlikely to be utilising too many of these, we may not be expanding on many of these unless we feel there is a need. However we will be adding the legislation to all in due course.

The up to date legislation can be found in each section for Part 17. With a summary as required. 

 

The sixteen sections within Part 17 are as follows:

Class A – Extensions, alterations etc ancillary to mining operations

Class C – Developments for maintenance or safety
