Andy Tickle - Friends of the P… these should principally relate to amenity (especially proximity to settlement), nature conservation and heritage designations, tranquillity maps and local landscape (character) sensitivities plus key recreational areas. Flood constraints would also be important. 30 Jul 2010 11:25
Deleted User In terms of the historic environment, the environmental constraints will need to be identified in the context of the guidance in PPS 5. 02 Aug 2010 13:59
Helen Fairfax - North East Der… Suggest principally environmental and historic assets, that could suffer irreparable damage as a result of coal mining and spoil deposit operations, eg. SSSI’s, Local Wildlife Sites, protected trees and woodlands, land within the setting of listed buildings, Historic Parks and Gardens and Conservation Areas and areas with specific landscape value. A buffer zone around existing communities could also be considered. 11 Aug 2010 11:04
Phil Jones Must make sure that the identification of one resource does not lead to the degradation of an adjacent area which then becomes fair game for an enchroaching mining zone. 16 May 2010 23:04
Planning - Cemex With regard to constraint these should be included on the proposals map so it is clearly identified what issues should be considered and then determine if they could be mitigated. Constraints should include, flooding, SSSI, SPA, SAC, Ramsar etc. It should be clarified if constraints mean presumption against development as this would not be an appropriate policy approach. 02 Aug 2010 13:32
Roger Caisley - Suon Ltd The approach would need to be consistent with MPG3 and test environmental acceptability. The constraints set out in that guidance would form a good basis for the development of a policy applying those criteria at the local level. 12 Aug 2010 14:06
