This morning, Northamptonshire County Council development control committee considered the application for the quarry proposals at the flood meadows near Warmington Mill.
Members of the public, the parish council and 'Say No' lobby group presented strong arguments against the proposals. The committee, however, voted to grant the application planning permission.
Everyone did all that they could under the circumstances, but the need for sand and gravel to build roads and houses was deemed to outweigh the objections put forward.
The parish council will be considering the matter further on Thursday 19th November
