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.

  • Comment ID: /3755649/14
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.

  • Comment ID: /3603841/1
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

That paragraph 3.19 on Built Heritage is expanded to read "A further tourist attraction of international importance in the County is located at Creswell Crags and is currently the subject of an initiative to gain World Heritage status."

Key Points from the Portrait of Minerals in Derbyshire There is duplication between the first two bullet points relating to sand and gravel, which is listed both as a mineral with a 'nationally significant role to play' in the first bullet point and as an 'other mineral' in the second bullet point.

I would draw to your attention that active consideration is being given to submission of a bid for World Heritage Status for Creswell Crags which lies within Bolsover District. The setting of the Crags is regarded as an important issue in attaining World Heritage Status. Consequently, it will be important to recognise and resolve any issues arising from protection of this setting and the activities of existing and potential mineral operations nearby. Indeed, paragraphs 7.22 and 7.23 of the Strat

As well as the County LCA, the Historic Landscape Characterisation should also be considered. It has been utilised to identify the 'Areas of High Environmental Value'.

It is recommended that this section is headed 'Historic Environment' to reflect PPS 5. The number of Registered Parks and Gardens should also be listed.

  • Comment ID: /3613729/3
The English Heritage guidance explains how past mineral working can become of historic significance (and often geological and nature conservation interest as well), such as the lead rakes and mines and Pleasley Headstocks scheduled monument, where it is eventually hoped that the site will become a visitor attraction. This aspect could be recognised here.

BW does not have a view as to whether Option 1 or Option 2 represents the better approach. However, we would expect that whichever approach is taken will acknowledge the importance of the Trent & Mersey Canal within the Trent Valley and take account of it in the restoration strategy for this area, recognising the particular character of the canal corridor and it's ecological importance. Any strategy should give careful consideration to securing the enhancement of the canal and it's environs and

DCA fully accept that aggregates and minerals need to be extracted in Derbyshire for the UK economy, road building, industrial manufacturing etc. and we also agree that the Peak District National Park must have enhanced protection to prevent the continuation of its destruction from quarrying and mining. There are many unique and extensive cave systems in the Peak District that have come under threat from quarrying over the years and still today can have a major negative impact on caving activiti
