Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - POLICY MWYN1

Representation ID: 620

OBJECT Mineral Products Association (Mr Malcolm Ratcliff)

Summary:

Ccould not find any reference to Mineral Safeguarding Areas on either the Proposals Map or its Key. Consider the proposed criteria for assessing non-mineral development are incoherent. The deficiencies of the policy are that it does not specify a minerals report which should provide information on the quantity and quality of mineral potentially sterilised; it does not distinguish between forms of permanent development that pose a real risk to mineral sterilisation and those like minor applications, that do not; and it does not require that a statement of relative need between the mineral and the proposed development is submitted for the mpa to make a judgement of the planning balance.

Detailed replacement policy provided (see attachment)

Change requested
A Mineral Safeguarding Area covering the Caernarfon coalfield should be included on the Proposals Map.
