Geodiversity

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) Annex 2: Glossary, published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) in 2012, defines geodiversity as: ‘The range of rocks, minerals, fossils, soils and landforms.’

The London Plan, Published by the Mayor of London in March 2016, suggests that geodiversity refers to: ‘The variety of rocks, fossils, minerals, landforms, soils and natural processes, such as weathering, erosion and sedimentation, that underlie and determine the character of our natural landscape and environment.’
