Andrew Threlfall Gives increased time to review required volumes for 2020 and to locate suitable alternative sources. 21 Jun 2010 12:54
Charles Butt - Nature After Mi… Provided that decisions about granting extensions to existing sites are based on potential to deliver priority habitat creation targets for the region. 11 Aug 2010 09:33
Karen Miller - National Trust This approach is partly agreed. As previously identified in the Trust's submissions on the discontinued site allocations DPD, there are significant environmental issues in respect of new sites in the Dove Valley. The approach up to 2020 is entirely appropriate. It is by no means clear that new sites in this location would be preferable to further extensions to existing sites; accordingly greater justification will need to be presented and considered in terms of broader Areas of Search. 10 Aug 2010 16:10
Mr Bowen - South Derbyshire Di… Members note comments about the future sustainability of sand and gravel extraction in the Trent Valley and the potential need to identify alternative locations (such as the Dove Valley around Foston and Sudbury) for sand and gravel extraction towards the end of the Plan period. That there is concern about the identification of potential future minerals development in the Dove Valley around Scropton and Foston due to the sensitivity of the area. 12 Aug 2010 14:43
Peter Toon - Hanson UK Fully support identification of specific extensions to sites but not areas of search. Govt guidance states that these should be avoided in preference to preferred areas. 28 Sep 2010 11:39
Andrew Leivers Postponing allocation would allow for change in requirements. For example, if more materials are recycled in the future, there may be less of a need for aggregates. 14 Jun 2010 13:26
Heidi Sargeant - Elvaston Pari… Sites should be selected considering ratio of yield to land take, overburden, transport & restoration. 05 Jul 2010 23:59
Jenna Conway - Tarmac We agree with the approach being recommended to identify specific site allocations up to 2020 but for the longer term where predictions are more difficult to identify areas of search 02 Aug 2010 14:59
Nigel Weedon - Longcliffe Quar… Confidential 14 Jun 2010 16:41
Phil Jones This strategy is simply putting off the day when resources are finally depleted by just a few years. A radical rethink needs to happen not straight line projection from the past. When all the environmentally sensitive areas and new resources have gone what then? Much better to conserve now and look for alternatives such as extraction of sand from sandbanks in the north sea as well as reducing demand. 16 May 2010 23:04
