MINUTES OF QUARRY COMMITTEE MEETINGS - are on our 'Meetings minutes' page  

Following items in reverse order ie most recent at the top. 

21 September 2017 

We are advised by Breedon's that they intend to submit a new planning application in October seeking a smaller expansion of Stowe Hill quarry than before - extending from the Longley Farm drive northheastwards to the lane running from Shophouse to Trow Green.

This area contains 2.5 million tons of stone to be extracted over a period of 5-6 years.  The new application (we are told) seeks to:

  • retain the plant which was to have been moved to Stowe Hill quarry, in Clearwell quarry
  • remove the application for an asphalt plant
  • retain extraction levels as at present at 600k tons / year
  • withdraw plans to build a new haul road to the B4228
  • withdraw plans for the demolition of Longley Farm
  • create a new access to Longley Farm from the B4228

When we have more details they will be posted here.

The current - undetermined - application will be held 'in limbo' pending discussions between the applicant and GCC. 


31 August 2017 

We are advised by GCC that they have agreed a time extension with the applicant until 23 November. 

27 February 2017 

We have responded to the additional information supplied by Breedon's at the request of GCC - you can read it here.
