A series of 9 regional events, focussing on planning-related matters, were run to consider the potential for the strategic planning of priority habitat creation on mineral sites, across the landscape, under the Minerals Development Frameworks (MDF), which were newly emerging at the time. A total of 350 minerals stakeholders joined in with these events and engaged in the discussion around minerals planning for biodiversity gain, providing valuable feedback and input to the development of the Nature After Minerals programme and its objectives .
