Minerals Local Plan

Two new potential quarry areas were proposed in the St Briavels vicinity in the draft Gloucestershire Minerals Local Plan (MLP) here.

At the July 2014 Parish Council meeting the Council unanimously resolved to oppose the quarries. The Parish Council response to the consultation is available here.

A new consultation here, including the latest draft Gloucestershire Minerals Local Plan, has been produced.  The consultation runs from September 29th 2016 until 24th November 2016.

Stowe Hill Quarry Expansion

A planning application by Breedon Aggregates for an extension to Stowe Hill quarry has been submitted to Gloucestershire County Council.  You can view the application at the GCC planning site here and then search for 14/0119/FDMAJM .  Remarkably, the Stowe Hill extension site is part of one of the proposed sites in the MLP above!

An opposition document, to the quarry expansion, by local residents is available here.

A further planning application (14/0118/FDMAJM) by Breedon Aggregates for a new Wash Plant has been submitted to Gloucestershire County Council.  An opposition document by a local resident is available here.
