Fresh chance to comment on Hampshire plans for mineral extraction
2:00pm Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in News
THE public is set to have another say on plans to extract millions of tonnes of minerals in Hampshire over the next 20 years.
A number of changes have been made to Hampshire County Council’s Minerals and Waste Plan, after it was inspected by an independent planning inspector.
Protesters spoke at a two-week hearing in Winchester in June when planning inspector Andrew Freeman examined the plan for “soundness”.
Concerns were raised about damage to the environment, noise, dust, loss of green space and extra lorry movement.
Changes made to the plan include moving the area earmarked for the supply of brick-making clay at Michelmersh Brickworks to include School House Field and Hillside Field.
The new consultation runs to Monday, December 17.
To comment on the changes, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01962 846591.
