London Rock Supplies Limited and Greenfield Associates hosted two successful public consultation exhibitions at Barton in Fabis and Clifton Village, to present the proposals to develop a new quarry on land at Mill Hill and Barton in Fabis.

Simon Rees, of Greenfield Associates felt the exhibition was a very worthwhile part of the public consultation process and stated; "While we recognise that some people don’t really like the idea of a quarry in their neighbourhood, it was extremely helpful to be able to talk to local people face to face – and deal directly with some of the misconceptions about the proposed new quarry."

"The exhibition also gave us the opportunity to take feedback on some of the areas of local concern, which we may otherwise not have appreciated."

The 12 exhibition panels can be viewed via the following link:

Once feedback from the exhibition has been collated, Greenfield Associates and its team of independent technical consultants will review its plans and fine tune its proposals.

The company hopes to submit its planning application – together with an Environmental Statement that will take into account all the likely significant effects and mitigation identified in the Environmental Impact Assessment – before Easter. A Non Technical Summary will also be produced and circulated to all local stakeholders.

Nottinghamshire County Council will then carry out its own consultation – and the local community will have further opportunity to comment.
