I assume what is presented are essentially objectives for a vision. Couldn't they be more 'visionary'? For example, element 12 "restoration strategies will have been developed...". Couldn't this be "Comprehensive, area based restoration strategies have been developed for areas along the Trent valley and the A615, resulting in a holistic, visionary approach to minerals working and site restoration in these areas. Site working and restoration proposals in these areas now contribute towards a str

Need to add a point on economic vision, community amenity and new job creation on the back of imaginative recreation restoration strategies. Need to emphasise the need for early planning for after use to mitigate subsequent cost.

There is always economic spin from bringing people into an area, though this is easy to understate and difficult to quantify - increased sales of petrol, food etc plus added casual business for other attractions in the area such as retail outlets, attractions etc. It is possible that some forms of recreation might generate income from cycle hire, boat hire, on site sales, parking. Such income should accrue to the local community rather than to multi national quarry companies. Within social we

The CS needs to establish the use of Landscape Character Types as a spatial context for considering environmental issues and establish the principle that environmental impacts will be considered within this context. This is important in helping to link to the work already done as part of the site allocations plan. The C&D Section developed a methodology within this spatial framework that considered landscape, visual, ecological and the historic environment issues in a more holistic and joined up

Vision 3 indicates that, by 2030, Derbyshire will have sought to assist in "achieving a progressive reduction of minerals won in the Peak District National Park" and Vision 7 states that "There will have been a reduction in the excessive landbank of permitted reserves of crushed rock in Derbyshire". Objectives C and G review methods of delivering this vision. Whilst it is entirely legitimate for the Authority to propose/pursue the vision set out, Tarmac does not feel it is legitimate to claim

Bullet point 10. Clarification is sought over what direction the council is seeking their modal shift in transportation. Bullet point 11. We would welcome this objective to include some text that supports the restoration of colliery tips and derelict land.

11. Restoration and inert fill We welcome the recognition of the need to secure scarce inert fill and a restoration-led approach to site selection. This Vision could highlight the need for restoration to contribute meet BAP targets, recognising the contributions the industry has made so far and highlighting the enormous potential to meet local and national BAP targets.

The document should explain why the crushed rock landbank in Derbyshire is considered by the Mineral Planning Authority to be excessive. It will be necessary to do that in the MCS and views that come forward from consultees may help in building a robust and credible evidence base to support this judgment. MPA do not necessarily agree that a large landbank is excessive; a landbank that is too low is a problem but a large landbank is not. The adverse social and environmental effects of mineral ex

By virtue of its geomorphology this county is rich in a variety of accessible minerals. Attached to existing and potential extraction-processing sites are many factors requiring careful consideration. However there are a handful of general principles which I feel, from experience, are relevant to all. I should like therefore to highlight these general points. 1. Volume/weight of output per man and machine hour is now high. 2. Plant, machinery, lorries and tankers are larger and louder. 3.

Para 10. BW welcomes the aim of transporting minerals more sustainably, and would comment that whilst the scope for transporting freight on waterways may be limited ue to the size of the navigations and the available navigation routes, where it is appropriate to move freight by water this option should not be disregarded. Transport Assessments submitted with new development proposals should consider and make reference to transportation of materials (e.g. minerals and spoil) by water. Para 11. BW
