relevant planning permission” means any planning permission for minerals development; and

second list” means, in relation to a council, the list prepared by the council under paragraph 4.

(2) For the purposes of this Schedule “mineral site” means—

(b)in any other case, the land to which a relevant planning permission relates.

(3) In determining whether it appears to it to be expedient to treat as a single site the aggregate of land to which two or more planning permissions relate a council must have regard to any guidance issued for the purpose by the Department.

(4) Any reference (however expressed) in this Schedule to a relevant planning permission relating to a mineral site is a reference to the mineral site, or some part of it, being the land to which the permission relates; and where any such permission authorises the carrying out of development consisting of the winning and working of minerals but only in respect of any particular mineral or minerals, that permission shall not be taken, for the purposes of this Schedule, as relating to any other mineral in, on or under the land to which the permission relates.

(5) For the purposes of this Schedule, a mineral site which is a Phase I site or a Phase II site is active if it is not a dormant site.

(6) For the purposes of this Schedule, working rights are restricted in respect of a mineral site if any of—

(a)the size of the area which may be used for the winning and working of minerals or the depositing of mineral waste;

(b)the depth to which operations for the winning and working of minerals may extend;

(7) For the purposes of this Schedule, where an application is made under paragraph 9 for the determination of the conditions to which the relevant planning permissions relating to the mineral site to which the application relates are to be subject, those conditions are finally determined when—

(a)the proceedings on the application have been determined, and

(b)any time for appealing under paragraph 11(1), or applying or further applying under paragraph 9, (where there is a right to do so) has expired.

the mineral site is a Phase II site.

(6) In ascertaining, for the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) or (5), whether any parts of a mineral site constitute the greater part of that site, or whether a part of a mineral site is greater than any other part, that mineral site shall be treated as not including any part of the site which is a part where minerals development has been (but is no longer being) carried out and which has, in the opinion of the council, been satisfactorily restored; but no part of a site shall be treated as being not so included in the site unless the council is satisfied that any after care conditions which relate to that part have, so far as relating to that part, been complied with.
