WHAT COULD HAPPEN?

The developers plan to remove clay sequentially from the clay pit. As a clay pit hole is created, it will be landfilled with "tromell fines".

 

This product would come from processing skips of construction waste.  

 

A building to house an on site construction material recycling facility (CMRF) would contain belts for processing the skip waste. Clay will be trucked back out by HGVs from the site, along with processed construction waste for resale. All HGVs will travel along forest tracks.

 

In fact, the inert waste processing site is intended to be a commercially viable operation in its own right even if the clay extraction activity doesn’t happen or ceases. *
