Para. 4.27: Not sure this is a very accurate representation of the limestone quality issue where there is considerable interplay between the physical and chemical properties. Para.4.30: Not sure that the site rmc plants provide concrete for pre-cast plants these usually have their own rmc plants on site.

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.'

Para. 3.18: There needs to be some caution in the use of RIGA data much of which has not been evaluated or assessed to establish its relevance or importance.

Should also make reference to development of clean coal technologies which will maintain if not increase coal use for energy supply, certainly during the period of the plan

7.75: It would be helpful in this section to make it clear that the safeguarding policies will encompass fireclay (within the coal areas) and vein minerals (within the limestone areas).

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. Para. 2.6: last line - delete "the" Para. 2.7: Not sure that "This figure determines the number and size of sites" is quite the correct phraseology it determines the amount which may be reflected in number and or size.

Not sure whether the figures quoted included associated transport and related support services but they should be included or at least referred to.

7.76: MCA are not obligatory, Government Policy advises their use but does not require. 7.77: Whilst the current advice re MSAs and MCAs is confusing I think it would be helpful if a clearer description of them and their roles/functions could be included. Issue 15 is placed directly after the discussion on MCAs which does not aid understanding. 7.78: From my reading of the guidance it is MSAs which should be included in District proposals maps and the district LDDs will also need to make refere

Para. 3.3: Could be clearer if referred to the closure of the collieries in the eastern (and southern) part of the county. Reference simply to the East Derbyshire Woodlands Project seems a bit over the top, there are many other initiatives and projects which have and continue to be more significant.
