it is a given that the landbank will decline with the passage of time if no new permissions are granted. However, Tarmac would be concerned that such a restrictive policy might result in otherwise environmentally worthwhile proposals being lost, leading to the loss of nationally important and sustainably accessible resources. Accordingly Tarmac acknowledges the potential value of the proposal for the release of additional reserves at specific sites in exchange for the revocation of consent

Being an engineer I perhaps see quarrying in a different way to someone visiting Derbyshire from an urban environment. I don't see a scar on the landscape, I see engineering, I see Man's ability to harness the landscape. I am not saying that they are as attractive as Telford's bridge across the Menai Straits but it could be said that pretty 'chocolate box' villages are a blight to an unadulterated valley. Everyone sees things differently. I am sure there are several things that could be done to

As previously mentioned, no justification has been included for why the mineral planning authority consider that the Derbyshire landbank is excessive. The adequacy of the landbank cannot be judged on the basis of a simple calculation. Management of landbanks must be based on considerations of real need and real supply (MPS1 Practice Guide Para. 71). It is not apparent therefore why the authority is obliged to take steps to reduce the landbank. The MPA is not aware that MPS1 requires authorities

We would be happy with either Option 1 or 2 with a slight preference for 2. However there must be a very clear and significant net benefit encompassing both overall landbank reduction and also sustainability and conservation benefits in terms of the comparable locations where future working is allowed/relinquished.

DCA would support the policy of reducing the permitted mineral reserves (land bank) within Derbyshire and the proposed means of achieving this aim are also supported in principle i.e. to encourage quarry operators to relinquish old permissions from the 1950s in exchange for being granted new permissions on more acceptable sites, mostly outside of the Peak Park. One suggestion which DCA may be willing to support, is further consideration of the notion of increasing extraction of limestone from th
