Mineral resources in Derbyshire - Suggest that caution is used in paragraph 4.5 in suggesting that there is an 'abundance of deposits elsewhere' particularly in relation to peat. Even if this is the case - is exploitation of this resource desirable, sustainable or practicable (given the protection applied to many such areas both nationally and internationally)?
