Yesterday afternoon Oxfordshire County Council’s Planning Committee voted against the proposals from Hills Quarry Products for a quarry on land at Clifton Hampden. The committee voted by 11 votes to reject the application. There were no votes in favour, with only one councillor abstaining.
Hills will almost certainly appeal the decision. The company has a board meeting later this week and will make a decision then. If the company appeals then it will go to a pubic enquiry next year.
Our county councillor Lynda Atkins spoke against the plan and raised the concerns of Long Wittenham residents
