The company that is responsible for the agricultural reservoir to the north of Eaglethorpe, to the east of the Eaglethorpe underpass below the A605, has applied for permission to quarry land on the water meadows, close to Warmington Mill, across which the Nene Way passes. The application includes proposals to build a bridge across the River Nene to transport materials.
The same company has applied for extensions to ancillary works to the existing reservoir to be extended to 2030
and an extension to the existing plant and works site, that had been for the creation of a reservoir, to enable additional operational space for treatment of materials for landfill, stockpiling and storage.
The council has submitted a 36-page objection to the new quarry, which can be accessed here:
An executive summary of the points made is here:
Warmington Parish Council is a statutory consultee in the application process for the "Elton2" quarry extension at the meadows to the north-west of Warmington Mill, where the Nene Way leads to Fotheringhay.

The parish council will do what it can to reflect local public opinion, but plays no part in the decision-making process so it is really important that people submit their own responses to the application too. The people making the decisions are county councillors based in Northampton who do not know our parish and will not know how people feel unless it's made clear in a forthright but polite way that evidences how the proposals do not comply with planning law.
The applicants have submitted a second set of submission papers which the parish council will be responding to in February 2020.
