[F82(1)This paragraph has effect for the purposes of determining which mineral sites are Phase I sites, which are Phase II sites, and which are neither Phase I nor Phase II sites.E+W

(2)A mineral site is neither a Phase I site nor a Phase II site where—

(a)all the relevant planning permissions which relate to the site have been granted after 21st February 1982; or

(b)some only of the relevant planning permissions which relate to the site have been granted after 21st February 1982, and the parts of the site to which those permissions relate constitute the greater part of that site.

(3)With the exception of those mineral sites which, by virtue of sub-paragraph (2) above, are neither Phase I nor Phase II sites, every mineral site is either a Phase I site or a Phase II site.

(4)Subject to sub-paragraph (2) above, where any part of a mineral site is situated within—

(a)a National Park;

[F9(b)a site of special scientific interest (within the meaning of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981);]

(c)an area designated under [F10section 82 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000] as an area of outstanding natural beauty;

that site is a Phase I site.

(5)Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) and (4) above, where—

(a)all the relevant planning permissions which relate to a mineral site, and which were not granted after 21st February 1982, were granted after the relevant day in 1969; or

(b)the parts of a mineral site to which relate such of the relevant planning permissions relating to the site as were granted after the relevant day in 1969 but before 22nd February 1982 constitute a greater part of the site than is constituted by those parts of the site to which no such relevant planning permission relates but to which a relevant planning permission granted on or before the relevant day in 1969 does relate,

the mineral site is a Phase II site.

(6)In sub-paragraph (5) above, “the relevant day in 1969” means—

(a)F12. . ., 31st March 1969; F13. . .

F13(b). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

(b)which is a Phase I site by virtue of sub-paragraph (4) above; or

(c)which is a Phase II site by virtue of sub-paragraph (5) above,

is a Phase I site.

(8)In ascertaining, for the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) or (5) above, 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—

(a)to which an old mining permission relates; or

(b)which is a part where minerals development has been (but is no longer being) carried out and which has, in the opinion of the mineral planning authority, been satisfactorily restored;

but no part of a site shall be treated, by virtue of paragraph (b) above, as being not included in the site unless the mineral planning authority are satisfied that any aftercare conditions which relate to that part have, so far as relating to that part, been complied with.]
