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.
