Derby & Derbyshire Minerals Core Strategy: Key Issues & Options Part Two: Vision, Objectives, Issues & Options Chapter 7: Major Issues & Options Objective A: Ensuring Sufficient Provision of Minerals How should we address the need for new sand and gravel provision? the Future Apportionment section

Paragraph 7.11 The question of the status that should be given to allocated sites is not answered on the basis of certainty of need. If areas of resources meet the tests set out in paragraphs 38 and 39 of the MPS1 Practice Guide they should be given Specific Site or Preferred Area status.

In a similar vein to the comments on Para.5.1. above, the justification behind draft objectives C. and G. must be included in the MCS. Where mineral extraction in National Parks is not "major" or it is in the public interest it is not contrary to national policy for minerals planning. Inclusion of the words "sufficient supply" in Objective F. is superfluous and confusing. The presumption should be that all mineral resources are safeguarded. Objective K should specifically mention maximising th

The matter of extensions to existing sites versus new sites is one for the mineral planning authority to consider on an area-by-area and case-by-case basis. Whilst cumulative impact may be a consideration, it may be outweighed by the increased restoration potential afforded by the assembly of larger land units. The economics of extraction are often best served by allowing extensions and the consequent longer term use of existing plant. What should certainly not be allowed to happen is that resou

It should be recognised that restored mineral sites constitute one of the most significant biodiversity resources in England.

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

  • Comment ID: /3979457/10
There is no Government policy which stipulates that there should be a progressive reduction in mineral working in National Parks. Paragraph 14 of MPS1 sets out the true policy situation which is that major mineral development proposals in National Parks should be demonstrated to be in the public interest before they are allowed to proceed. A reduction in the supply of minerals from the PDNP should only be an objective if that is proved to be in the public interest.

The same comment applies as that for Para.2.4. Consideration should also be given to identifying Preferred Areas.

Permitted Mineral reserves" (Paragraph 4.20) This is incorrect terminology. As shown in Appendix A, a mineral resource must be "permitted" for it to be "a reserve". Key points from the Portrait of Minerals in Derbyshire Despite the fact that the economic impact of minerals working is mentioned in the preceding pages, not one single positive point is made in the list about the industry in the box of Key points on page 25. The industry makes a significant contribution to the local economy, biod

  • Comment ID: /3979457/12
Mineral Safeguarding Areas are an obligatory component of a mechanism by which mineral planning authorities can ensure that mineral resources are not needlessly sterilised by other forms of development (MPS1, Para.13). They should be defined above and where appropriate around all mineral deposits that are believed to be of current or future economic importance. Such deposits are known as "mineral resources". MSAs should therefore be defined above and around all mineral resources. The position of
