The background comments on policy DM15 refer to paragraph 143 in the NPPF. If the policy is to cover "unconventional" gas extraction as well as more conventional minerals working, presumably the council is also mindful of paragraph 147 in particular. As more information becomes available, further consideration may be merited on compliance with paragraph 147, informed by (evolving) guidance from government (as stated in the policy DM15).

DM15 Mineral Working Applications should recognise any water or waste water assets affected by proposals, any impacts upon ground water resources and any mitigation measures necessary.

North Somerset Landscape Character Assessment SPD This SPD is listed under "Other documents" in DM19 but it is not listed as an SPD in the Council's Local Development Framework web page http://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/Environment/Planning+policy/Local+Development+Framework. Has that document been formally adopted as an SPD in the LDF. Should this SPD be listed under "Other Documents" in DM11, which also refers to it? Should this SPD be listed under "Other Documents" in other policies that refer

DM13 Mineral working, exploration, extraction and processing - we advise a link could usefully be made to Green Infrastructure particularly with respect to the phasing and restoration of mineral sites.

Note Minerals Safeguarding Area (limestone) at DM15 and need for liaison meetings with the relevant quarries on a regular basis.

DM15 Minerals exploration, extraction and processing Policy DM15: Reference is made in the text to measures being taken to minimise the waste of resources and that any waste generated is used for a productive purpose. There must be recognition of economic viability in the minimisation of waste. In addition the requirement for "any" waste generated to be used for a productive purpose is both onerous and unrealistic. There will always be some waste that cannot sensibly or economically be used

Policy DM15: Mineral Working Exploration, Extraction and Processing Regarding hydraulic fracturing or fracking, the Trust's current view is that applications should be assessed on their ecological impacts both directly on the footprint of the site and on the surrounding habitat including watercourses, etc. We welcome the policy reference to potential impacts on biodiversity and we would expect there to be a full environmental impact assessment as part of the planning process for any such applic

The council is concerned about the possible use of fracking in North Somerset and would be grateful to responses on the following questions: Is NSC working with other local authorities such as BANES on the environmental criteria they are required to develop? When will the criteria be developed? Will the criteria be the subject of a separate consultation?

There are a lot of 'shoulds' in the requirements for developers. There needs to be concrete legal requirements in place for a subsequent clean up after use and after accidents. We must ensure that such costs are not born by the tax payer. Should we ever allow fracking (heaven forbid) the total environmental costs must be born by the developers
