Derby & Derbyshire Minerals Core Strategy: Key Issues & Options Part Two: Vision, Objectives, Issues & Options Chapter 7: Major Issues & Options Objective G: Reducing the landbank of permitted reserves of crushed rock in Derbyshire? reducing the landbank of permitted reserves of crushed rock in Derbyshire

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.

Option 1 b) long term planning is beneficial to all as it allows certainty and usually through this, additional benefits (screening etc) to be put in place at the earliest opportunity. It also allows for a strategic consensual approach to be used both with the various operators and key external stakeholders, including local communities. However, a long term strategy should also be clearly derived from local considerations, e.g. BAP targets etc, landscape character studies.

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 do we manage demand for oil & gas developments? the New Coal Exploitation Technologies section

  • Comment ID: /3755649/11
Our attitude to these exploitation methods is conditioned by the relative carbon emissions they engender. Operations that help control (and then combust) the leakage of methane to atmosphere may, for example, be prioritised because unabated emissions may be more harmful as greenhouse gases (methane is c.30 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2). Again a more generic criteria based policy may be most appropriate given the relative rarity of such applications.

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

Strong support for this policy as phrased, i.e. in relation to what is sustainable supply (both vis-à-vis sensitivities of where the alternative supply is located and how it gets to market). See above (comments on Issue 1) for the rationale on the relative size of the displacement that DC/DC can contribute to.

Issue 13: a) yes and b) co-location of these sites seems most appropriate and one consultation on such sites (through the WCS) seems optimal.

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.

  • Comment ID: /3755649/15
We remain neutral on the approach taken, save a slight preference for an approach that is limited to rarer, non-ubiquitous minerals of clear local and regional value.

  • Comment ID: /3755649/16
Safeguarding, for needed minerals, is a sensible approach, provided surface development is not used as an excuse for otherwise unacceptable or unnecessary mineral extraction.
