DM17 Allocation of land at The Spinney, south of Stancombe Quarry, as a preferred area for minerals working. Policy DM17: There are a number of bullet points listed in the text as requirements for the development of the Spinney. The second bullet point requires the genuine need for the development to be demonstrated. It is unclear what is meant by "genuine need".

The third bullet point of paragraph 143 of the NPPF states that MSAs should relate to "...known locations of specific mineral resources of local and national importance...". The currently defined MSA only identifies a relatively sma

Policy DM18: Identification of Minerals Safeguarding Area for carboniferous limestone Test of Soundness Positively Prepared - no Justified - no Effective - no Consistency to NPPF - no Legal & Procedural Requirements Inc. Duty to Cooperate - no Objection -This policy only seeks to safeguard carboniferous limestone within a Mineral Safeguarding Area (MSA). This is considered to represent a policy omission and other mineral resources including surface coal should also be safeguarded. Surfac
