This Area Action Plan sets out land use policies and proposals to create sustainable, new, mixed use but mainly residential neighbourhoods at Plymstock Quarry, and related to Sherford. It also sets out policies and proposals for neighbouring sites including Chelson Meadow, Saltram, Moorcroft Quarry and Hazeldene Quarry.

Minerals Development Plan Document

Plymouth's minerals strategy forms part of the North Plymstock Area Action Plan. It sets out land use policies and proposals for the safeguarding, extraction and processing of minerals. Substantive proposals include:

  • The safeguarding of limestone quarrying for the foreseeable future at Hazeldene Quarry
  • The protection of minerals reserves to the north of Hazeldene Quarry to allow for the development of Sherford New Community to the east
