Derby & Derbyshire Minerals Core Strategy: Key Issues & Options Part Two: Vision, Objectives, Issues & Options Chapter 7: Major Issues & Options Objective C: How do we contribute to a reduction in the supply of aggregates from the Peak District National Park? how we contribute to a reduction in the supply of aggregates from the Peak District National Park

Strong support for this policy as phrased, i.e. in relation to what is sustainable supply (both vis-à-vis sensitivities of where the alternative supply is located and how it gets to market). See above (comments on Issue 1) for the rationale on the relative size of the displacement that DC/DC can contribute to.

Issue 13: a) yes and b) co-location of these sites seems most appropriate and one consultation on such sites (through the WCS) seems optimal.

A specific policy on this might be best avoided as some tips (e.g. in dormant sites for gritstone) are incredibly sensitive and use of virgin rock from more sustainable locations would be preferable. The same arguments applies even more forcibly to a spatial mapping approach unless a very clear set of filters was applied to exclude unsustainable locations.

We remain neutral on the approach taken, save a slight preference for an approach that is limited to rarer, non-ubiquitous minerals of clear local and regional value.

Safeguarding, for needed minerals, is a sensible approach, provided surface development is not used as an excuse for otherwise unacceptable or unnecessary mineral extraction.

The suggestion that areas of the Dove Valley should be explored for future sand and gravel working is warranted given the length of the plan period. As well as the areas around Foston and Scropton the area of the Dove Valley to the north of Uttoxeter should also be explored.

When calculating the number of new minerals sites required to ensure there is sufficient minerals provision, the contribution from existing sites should be taken into account. When identifying new minerals sites Internationally Designated Wildlife Sites will have an accompanying buffer zone within which no minerals sites should be located. Any sites located outside the boundaries of any Internationally important site will need to be individually assessed as there may be to as important concentr

We wish to draw your attention to the comments made in our letter of 31 August 2006 in relation to the proposed Minerals Site Allocations document regarding the identification of sites.
