Grundon’s Gravel Gamble

Following yesterday’s exhibition by Grundon, about their plans for gravel extraction at New Barn Farm, many people have assumed that they have planning permission and will be pushing ahead with their plans.

This is not the case; Grundon have to apply to Oxfordshire County Council for permission to extract. I believe that they will not be given permission as their application is pre-emptive and lies outside the strategy document that has been produced by OCC. They are hoping to be allowed to dig their pit before the Council has a policy to guide minerals extraction.

When there is an application CAGE, the Parish Council and I will swing into action to garner public opinion across both Wallingford and Cholsey
