Entirely predictably Oxfordshire County Council, at the full Council meeting, has decided to impose a gravel pit on Cholsey.
The County have done this despite some very strong arguments from CAGE and the town and parish councils. We have also been joined in opposition to the plan by the two AONBs (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) that surround the sites. Both AONBs say that the sites should not be developed until all other sites have been explored.
The fight against the imposition of the pit will go on. CAGE will continue to amass evidence to present to the Government Inspector at the Enquiry in Public in the autumn.
