The list of development considered 'not inappropriate' is not consistent with the guidance in the NPPF. The references are only to the list of construction of new buildings as set out in paragraph 89 of the NPPF. There is no reference to development set out in paragraph 90, which is also development that is not inappropriate, including mineral extraction, engineering operations, the re-use of buildings, etc. The Policy must refer to these forms of development as being not inappropriate in order to be consistent with national policy and the rest of the consultation Sites and Policies Plan.
