Representations on Deposit Joint Local Development Plan - 7.5.67

Representation ID: 314

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


There is a reasonable likelihood of the LDP failing to achieve a minimum 10 year landbank for crushed rock in Gwynedd. The recessionary 10 years upon which demand has been calculated is likely to be an underestimate. It does not reflect the major infrastructure projects identified in the RTS. The landbank calculation is flawed by combining slate with primary aggregates. Slate accounts for between 11.7% and 14.8% aggregates usage. The calculated landbank has a higher and disproportionate contribution from slate. The constraints on using slate as highlighted in the RTS have not been properly considered. Strategically important high Specification Aggregates require recognition.
