Proposed HS2 Quarry Development at Orgreave

Jun 16, 2020

Alrewas residents may be aware that the Staffordshire County Council Minerals Plan created three and a half years ago designated an ‘area of search’ stretching from Alrewas to Kings Bromley. Quarrying companies could then apply for planning permission to quarry anywhere in this area. This is the first application that has been made since then, although, of course HS2 are proposing to excavate 3 ‘borrow pits’ in Kings Bromley which they intend to fill in once the extraction has been completed.

Parishioners wishing to make comments or objections to SCC will need to do so by 2nd July.
