Issue 4: Safeguarding Future Resources

Government policy requires economically workable resources to be safeguarded so that they are not sterilised by other forms of development i.e. they are not built on so the sand and gravel cannot then be extracted.  This means that they will be available for use by future generations if required.  The sand and gravel resource is unlikely to be built on because it lies within the flood plain, but nevertheless, given its economic importance and government policy, it would seem prudent to safeguard the remainder of the resource.
