Mineral Extraction & Landfill Waste – latest update
The 35-acre proposed extension of Swanworth Quarry consultation period continues. Local comments are still needed.
If no comments are received, they will presume we are all happy with this quarry extension and increased Waste Landfill.
The site remains the same size but now includes a “possible tunnel” over The Purbeck Way?
It now extends further North into the field adjacent to the B3069, where it will be fully visible to the local community.
Now includes increased Waste Landfill of the present site up to 400,000 tonnes: this will be transported through Corfe Castle and up Kingston Hill.
If approved the new site would give rise to additional traffic through the Parish for an extended period.
This AONB site (one of only 33 in the country) will be compromised for a finite aggregate resource.
