Minerals Waste and Local Plan Review

Minerals and Waste and Local Plan Review – Land at Heath Road, Eccles Quidenham Civil Parish.

Conclusion of review:
The site is considered to be unsuitable for allocation because: ‘Mineral extraction at this site would have unacceptable local landscape impacts and screening and bunding could be intrusive in it own right. Whilst it may be possible to mitigate adverse landscape impacts though advance planting and bunding, this is uncertain and there are more acceptable alternative sites for sand and gravel extraction proposed in the Plan.’
