Representation ID: 875

OBJECT Mr John Tripp

Criterion 2 - Safeguarding mineral assets. Use of slate waste. Restoration - legal and financial restraints (cite South Wales - open cast)

Representation ID: 623

OBJECT Mineral Products Association (Mr Malcolm Ratcliff)

Summary:

POLICY MWYN4: MINERAL DEVELOPMENTS
This policy is unsound because it fails soundness test CE1. The following criteria are the subject of objection,
1. We question whether the inclusion of odour in the list of amenity effects relates to minerals at all. Surely, this is limited to the deposit of waste?
7. We object to the inclusion of this criterion because we believe it is not needed since all aspects of the environment are already covered by other criteria in the policy ad it thus serves no useful purpose because an overall assessment of all environmental effects would be carried out in the determination process. It is moreover, notoriously difficult to define environmental capacity for all types of effects for which the concept is unsuited.

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

Summary:

Policy is overly prescriptive rather than supportive of mineral winning e.g. not all landscapes, biodiversity and other assets are of the same value. It applies a blanket protection of all assets. There is no consideration in the policy of the benefits of mineral extraction to local economy, employment or the restored environment.
