Friday, 05 June 2015 3 Comments by Claire
The planning application for a 100 acre quarry at Straitgate Farm, near Ottery St Mary, has now gone live on Devon County Council’s website.
A separate application has been submitted for processing the sand and gravel at Blackhill Quarry on Woodbury Common, which would result in 140 lorry movements each day along the B3180.
Residents now have around three weeks to comment on the application, by Aggregate Industries.
Also, the draft minerals plan (long term strategic quarrying document), in which Straitgate Farm is a preferred site, will be considered by Devon County Council’s development management committee on Tuesday 15 July, before being consulted on for three months. It is vital that as many people attend this meeting as possible. It starts at 2pm.
