Quarry plans for north Essex revealed
CAMPAIGNERS are celebrating after plans to create new quarries in several north Essex villages have been shelved.
Essex County Council’s final draft policy for quarrying in the county - due to be signed by a government minister in the summer of 2013 - has been published, detailing which sites are preferred.
Extensions to quarries in Stanway, Ardleigh, Alresford, Birch and Rivenhall are preferred as well as a new site in Witham.
But early proposals for new quarries in Ardleigh, Alresford, Fingringhoe and Frating which were preferred by council officers have now been scrapped.
