Wyre Forest Green Party stands firmly with residents of Cookley, Broadwaters and Sion Hill in their opposition to a sand and gravel quarry between these areas at Lea Castle Farm.
Spokesperson John Davis said, "Not only will the quarry destroy good agricultural land with pleasant rights-of-way, it will cause air and noise pollution and numerous HGV movements in the area. There are better sites around the country, further away from populations where the aggregate can be obtained that is needed for construction."
