I give notice that on 27 October 2020 NRS Aggregates Ltd wrote to Worcestershire County Council submitting further information in relation to the Environmental Statement regarding a number of matters including: water environment, ecology and biodiversity, landscape, agricultural land classification and soils, cultural heritage, transport movement and access, rights of way, and restoration and aftercare. The County Council are now seeking comments on this further information.

On 10 January 2020 NRS Aggregates Ltd applied to Worcestershire County Council for planning permission for the above proposal. The application is accompanied by an Environmental Statement. The proposed development does not accord with the provisions of the development plan in force in the area in which the land to which the application relates is situated, as the proposal is not located within an identified preferred area for sand and gravel extraction within The County of Hereford and Worcester Minerals Local Plan (April 1997), and the application site is located within the Green Belt. The development would affect Public Rights of Way and may affect the setting of Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas. The applicant is seeking planning permission to extract approximately 3 million tonnes of sand and gravel over a total of 6 phases. The land would be progressively restored using site derived and imported inert material to agricultural parkland, public access and nature enhancement. The applicant estimates the development would take approximately
II years to complete. The County Council sought comments on the planning application between 6 February 2020 and 19 March 2020.
