OCC Gravel Change Of Heart

Today the County Council decided to scrap the existing Minerals and Waste Core Strategy and go back to first principles.

The main reason for this change is that the Government Inspector was critical of the way the council had worked on their Strategy and a lack of co-operation with neighbouring authorities.

This volt face will allow us to put our case properly to the consultation that is sure to be part of the formulation of the new Core Strategy. It may also be possible to argue that less gravel will need to be extracted in the county, which may alleviate the need for any new pits.
