- Harden Moor test drilling for quarry extension
Just looking on Magic, the land appears to be CROW access land, but not Registered Common
It’s possible that the council own the land but not the mineral rights.
Quarry extension looks complex, as I’m not sure if there’s a process to delist land ceded in perpetuity as access and in order to permit quarrying.Posted 4 years ago
From the above article:-
“The RA is now stepping up its campaign for a right of access to England and Wales’s coastline.
Less than five miles from the site of the minister’s visit, campaigners have won the first stage of a battle to stop a quarry company extending into CRoW access land.
Bradford Council’s Shipley area committee refused to grant permission for Midgeham
Cliffe End Quarry to sink test bore holes with a view to using Harden Moor to quarry Yorkshire gritstone. The company wants to buy the land from the council. The committee passed the decision on to the council’s full executive with a recommendation that it note the strong public opposition to the quarry’s proposals”
I wonder what’s changed in the meantime?Posted 4 years agoEntonoxMember
Pages 16 – 19 of this document make interesting reading.
I wonder Simon. It was canned in 2006. How has it been approved now? Was there another petition?Posted 4 years agosingletrackkaneMember
There is a campaign ongoing acting against these plans.
The Facebook page:
Once Bradford council give permission (hopefully in the next couple of days), there will be an e-petition up on the council site.Posted 4 years ago
Here’s a link to the e-petitionPosted 4 years ago
Simon, Just seen thisPosted 4 years ago
This e-mail somehow ended up in my spam folder, so I only came across it just now
Dear Mr Mullet,
I am contacting you as lead petitioner of the recently proposed e-petition on Bradford Council’s website concerning the drilling on Harden Moor.
If you are not already aware, the drilling on the moor has now ceased as no reserves of stone were found. That being the case, you may wish to withdraw the petition.
If so, could you confirm either with myself or with Palbinder Sandhu in the Council’s Committee Services. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am also happy to try answer any queries you may have regarding the moor.
