Objective K should be reworded as follows: To ensure that reclamation is planned before, and such plans updated during extraction, and that during extraction, land is reclaimed at the earliest practicable opportunity. To ensure that high quality restoration and aftercare takes place which makes optimum use of available inert fill material and which maximises community and environmental benefits.

Para 2.5 is both sound and difficult. The first problem with it is that the five indents are weighted consecutively. They all have to be taken into account simultaneously and a balanced judgement made. An insert saying "the following points shold be considered jointly to ensure impact is minimised" would suffice. Agree and endorse the point in para 2.7 that the srategy should assist in the reduction of quarrying in the Peak Park.

This section lacks a paragraph on the nature of community and the sort of sustainable economic vision necessary to foster its future well being.

Given the level of reserves, there can be no justification for adding any more.

There is an argument that large new landforms need not be regarded as having a wholly negative impact on the landscape. We hope no one would suggest that those parts of Stanage Edge which were quarried should now be restored to current ground levels. There is room for a similar approach to some of the major aggregate sites for the benefit of amenity, variety and opportunity.

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.

Welcome the many references to site restoration, but we think you should go further. Collectively, disused quarries represent a huge land resource and a huge opportunity for creating a sustainable new post industrial economy for local amenity, for a wide diversity of recreational activity and for a portfolio of wide ranging conservation initiatives. A fundamental point is that different activities can and indeed should be complementary. Our argument is for a presumption in favour of inclusivi

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
