3       Vision and Objectives

3.1    A separate paper will seek your views on the emerging vision and objectives for the Plan and will ask you what you think about matters relating to the provision of sand and gravel, including:

  • contributing to the national, regional and local mineral supply by maintaining an adequate and steady supply of minerals;
  • providing minerals for the delivery of sustainable economic development and regeneration of Derbyshire and Derby;
  • making the most sustainable use of mineral resources, including by maximising the use of recycled and secondary materials in meeting recognised national and regional requirements and by ensuring the most efficient use of high quality minerals and the minimisation of waste materials;
  • and addressing whether cumulative impact of successive mineral developments and other developments have an adverse impact on local communities.
