Thank you for consulting the NFU on this plan. I only have one point to make about the draft which concerns paragraphs 7.92 to 7.94. We are keen to see that agriculture is not ruled out from restoration of sand and gravel workings. Farmland should be one of a number of possibilities for restoration, depending on the previous land use, possibilities for the future and the desires of the landowner (and former tenant, if any).

I would be grateful if you could take this point into account.
