                                      4.1 A separate paper will seek your views on the emerging vision and objectives for  the Minerals Local Plan (MLP). They will contain matters relating to the restoration of former mineral workings, including, ensuring that, after extraction, land is reclaimed to high standards at the earliest practicable opportunity, making optimal use of inert fill material. Also, that high quality, sensitively designed restoration and long term managed aftercare takes place, which maximises economic, community and environmental benefits.
