7.69 The end of the paragraph would perhaps be better phrased as ' alternative to primary aggregates.' 7.71: Prefer this to read ' reducing the production of primary aggregate and ........ we promote the use of secondary and recycled aggregates.'

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.

If spoil heaps and other waste mounds have fully returned to nature then they should be left alone, nature is under a lot of pressure. If they are recently grassed over coal mine spoil heaps that form an unnatural shape in a flat landscape they should be used as recycled material subject to local conditions.
