POLICY R4

Proposals to develop land based sand and gravel extraction will be supported subject to an assessment of the supplies of such material available from both marine dredged and land resources within an appropriate area for land bank calculations and where:

  1. There is a positive response to the general requirements identified in Policy R1,
  2. There would be no significant adverse effect on natural heritage and the historic environment,
  3. There would be no adverse impact on the quality and quantity of controlled waters,
  4. Access arrangements are adequate and the volume and type of traffic generated can be safely accommodated on the highway network,
  5. There would be no significant adverse effect on amenity as a result of noise, grit, dust, odour or vibration.
Development proposals that would affect the working of known potential mineral resources, as identified on the Proposals Map, will have to be accompanied by a full assessment of the potential mineral resource and the impact of the proposal in terms of sterilising the resource. Permission will be refused if the assessment indicates that the mineral resources would be sterilised.
