Endorsement of the South Wales Regional Aggregates Working Party Regional Technical Statement 2nd Review (2020)
DECISION that the Portfolio Holder endorses the Regional Technical Statement Second Review (2020) in Appendix 1 of the report.
The main purpose of the endorsement is to confirm that Powys County Council accepts the apportionment for aggregates for the Powys LPA area, as set out in the Second Review of the RTS (figures as detailed at 3.4.4 above).
In accordance with national policy, the revised or replacement Powys Local Development Plan will include the latest RTS requirements to ensure that the required land bank for the supply of aggregates (crushed rock in Powys, sand and gravel land bank not relevant) as required for the construction industry and economic health is maintained.
It should be noted that if individual local authorities do not accept the Regional Technical Statement Second Review, the Welsh Government will, as a last resort, consider its default powers to intervene in the Development Plan process (MTAN 1, paragraph A3).
