Land Property & Minerals

Minerals, and clay in particular, are the basic raw material for all sectors of the ceramic manufacturing industry, therefore a secure long-term supply is essential. Furthermore, for the sectors which extract their own clay, supply is dependent on a favourable minerals planning regime – both nationally and locally.

The interaction between planning law and environmental regulation governing minerals extraction is complex and subtle and we negotiate with government and regulators to ensure legislation is proportionate to the industry’s impact.
