1. The proposed site is greenfield. Development of which would cause considerable environmental damage in an Area of Outstanding Beauty.
2. There has not been proven need for the quarry material (limestone) in fact the demand has decreased.
3. Road access is insufficient. Suggested link road to the A48 would cause considerable environmental damage and disturbance to people and nature and would increase the chance of accidents and therefore fatalities on the A48.
4. The pressure on the ground water would be significant. The geology and hydro-geology is complex through the escarpment and development of the quarry would impact on the streams and brooks feeding through the village.
5. The production of crushed rock is unlikely to be achieved until the end or after the plan period therefore it will not meet land bank needs.
6. The quarry will cause considerable disturbance to local communities and there will be a potential for vibration and damage to buildings including and ancient church.
7. Experience of one parishioner who has worked with quarries was that the impact of cement lorries as well as quarry lorries should be considered and that once the area has been quarried and a large hole dug that local councils had a tendency to use them as refuse dumps.
