Sand quarry to be re-submitted to both Councils

Sibelco UK still plan to submit their quarry application, but now to both Cheshire East and Cheshire West councils.

In the meantime they have withdrawn their planning application 16/4724W to quarry silica sand at Rudheath Lodge Farm off New Platt Lane just outside Goostrey.  However the new application for a sand quarry, across Cheshire East and CWAC farmland in Cranage and Allostock parishes, will essentially be the same as their initial scheme.

Sibelco spokesman Nigel Canham said: “In order to allow our proposals to be assessed in the appropriate manner we have now withdrawn our original planning application and are preparing a revised submission for both CEC and CWAC.”

Residents living near the site raised an objections group ‘ Residents against Quarrying ‘ but it is not yet known if objections will be carried over to the new application.
