Dean Quarry security fence
We intend to submit a planning application for a security fence at Dean Quarry. Permission was originally granted in April 2015 and the fence was erected, but that permission was later overturned following a judicial review of the local authority's consent, so a fresh application needs to be made.
We are currently seeking guidance from the planning authority and Secretary of State to ask whether an Environmental Impact Assessment of the fence needs to be carried out, and if so, what impacts need to be included in any assessment.
