(a)an application made under paragraph 6 above in respect of a mining site is finally determined; and

(b)the conditions to which the mineral permissions relating to the site are to be subject, as determined under this Schedule, differ in any respect from the proposed conditions set out in the application; and

(c)the effect of the new conditions, except insofar as they are restoration or aftercare conditions, as compared with the effect of the existing conditions, except insofar as they were restoration or aftercare conditions, is to restrict working rights in respect of the site.

(2)For the purposes of this paragraph—

  • the new conditions”, in relation to a mining site, means the conditions, determined under this Schedule, to which the mineral permissions relating to the site are to be subject; and

  • the existing conditions”, in relation to a mining site, means the conditions to which the mineral permissions relating to the site were subject immediately prior to the final determination of the application made under paragraph 6 above in respect of that site.

(3)For the purposes of this paragraph, working rights are restricted in respect of a mining 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;

(c)the height of any deposit of mineral waste;

(d)the rate at which any particular mineral may be extracted;

(e)the rate at which any particular mineral waste may be deposited;

(f)the period at the expiry of which any winning or working of minerals or depositing of mineral waste is to cease; or

(g)the total quantity of minerals which may be extracted from, or of mineral waste which may be deposited on, the site,

is restricted or reduced in respect of the mining site in question.

(4)In a case to which this paragraph applies, but subject to sub-paragraph (6) below, F37. . ., Parts IV and XI of the 1990 Act F38. . ., shall have effect as if an order made under section 97 of the 1990 Act F38. . .—

(b)as so confirmed, had effect to modify those permissions to the extent specified in sub-paragraph (6) below.

(5)For the purposes of this paragraph, the order referred to in sub-paragraph (4) above is one whose only effect adverse to the interests of any person having an interest in the land or minerals comprised in the mineral site is to restrict working rights in respect of the site to the same extent as the relevant restriction.

(6)For the purposes of section 116 of the 1990 Act F38. . . and of any regulations made under [F39those sections], the permissions treated as being modified by the order mentioned in sub-paragraph (4) above shall be treated as if they were planning permissions for development which neither consists of nor includes any minerals development.]
