Mineral strategy

This report focuses primarily on how the Island makes and will continue to make the necessary provision of minerals in the form of construction aggregates, in order to satisfy the community’s development requirements.

In doing so, it takes on board the need to maintain a high quality environment and to generally embrace the principles of sustainable development, the scope of the study includes:

  • to establish existing and potential sources / reserves of minerals within and around the Island (terrestrial and marine) by
    • type
    • volume 
    • quantity
  • to assess the future market requirement for minerals use within the Island (it is presumed that no licence will be given to export materials from the Island)
  • to assess the potential that exists for recycled minerals, concrete and bitumen based products to meet the Island’s future market requirements
  • to consider the implications of the Island’s commitment to sustainable development on the future supply of minerals
  • to assess and make recommendations for supplying / managing minerals to meet future markets, including a full economic and environmental appraisal of the alternatives (including importation)
  • to make planning policy recommendations for the future exploitation / safeguarding of mineral resources for minimising the impact of mineral operations on the local environment
