Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - STRATEGIC POLICY PS19

Representation ID: 659

OBJECT Ty Mawr West ltd (John Hill)

Summary:

PS19 Minerals -Slate Waste

The summary relating to the rail connection at Blaenau Ffestiniog does not portray the total facts of the matter. Yes there is a passenger rail connection but the rail infrastructure itself is unsuitable for the passage of heavy goods wagons which remedial works would require major expenditure

Representation ID: 619

OBJECT Mineral Products Association (Mr Malcolm Ratcliff)

Summary:

STRATEGIC POLICY PS19 MINERALS
this policy is in danger of confusing separate objectives of mineral planning by putting them under the general heading of supply and is thus UNSOUND

Representation ID: 594

OBJECT The Coal Authority (Mr James Smith)

Summary:

Policy PS19 fails to make reference to potential proposals for hydrocarbons and unconventional hydrocarbons

Suggested Changes

OBJECT Lafarge Tarmac Trading Limited represented by Pleydell Smithyman Limited (Mr Robert Price)

Summary:

Suggest hierarchy to support existing mineral extraction sites, then extensions to existing sites before new sites are considered. It is considered however the Council should maintain a MINIMUM 10 year land bank of crushed rock at all times. Alternative restoration plans should be considered outside the traditional return to greenfield sites.

Representation ID: 246

OBJECT Ellesmere Sand & Gravel Company Limited represented by Pleydell Smithyman Limited (Mr Robert Price)

Summary:

Suggest hierarchy to support existing mineral extraction sites, then extensions to existing sites before new sites are considered. It is considered however the Council should maintain a MINIMUM 7 year land bank for Sand and Gravel at all times. Alternative restoration plans should be considered outside the traditional return to greenfield sites. Dormant and long inactive sites should be considered a potential valuable source of mineral that can be called upon when demand is high and a land bank is not fully available.

Promotion of existing mineral extraction sites and extensions to these sites should be promoted above any new sites. It is considered the Council should maintain a MINIMUM 7 year land bank for Sand and Gravel at all times and there should be a positive presumption toward mineral extraction particularly at existing sites. Actively encourage alternative after uses for mineral extractions sites over the return to greenfield where appropriate. Remove point 9.
