New Quarry at Elton.



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:
