We re-emphasise our support in relation to the point in para 2.7 that the strategy should assist in the reduction of quarrying in the Peak Park.

Para 2.5 is both sound and difficult. The first problem with it is that the five indents are weighted consecutively. They all have to be taken into account simultaneously and a balanced judgement made. An insert saying "the following points shold be considered jointly to ensure impact is minimised" would suffice. Agree and endorse the point in para 2.7 that the srategy should assist in the reduction of quarrying in the Peak Park.

Although MPSs are explicitly mentioned, I assume PPSs, including PPS9 are relevant considerations in the development of our MDF? By the same token, I assume the RSS is no longer relevant, although I presume that the evidence base used in the development of the RSS is still considered robust?

Para. 2.4: (First bullet point) needs to clarify that the apportionment, for as long as it may last, relates to MPA areas not counties.

Paragraph 2.4 When making provision for new mineral sites the Minerals Core Strategy (MCS) should use the accepted terminology set out in MPS1 Annex 1 Para. 3.6.

Paragraph 2.7 Progressive reduction in the amount of minerals extraction from the PDNP may have implications not only in the East Midlands Region but in other regions. An incorrect reference is made to "resources of economic value". To be defined a resource, a mineral deposit must be of economic value.

Para 2.5 doesn't seem to reflect the importance of rail for primary distribution of extracted minerals mainly from the Peak District and to Chaddesden Sidings from the rail ballast renewal process. Rail offers a potential bigger market for the product so is both an opportunity and a threat to minerals planning. The impact of the availability of local limestone in attracting the establishment of big new nationally significant cement plants does not seem to have been fully recognised. These mostl
