Petitions and Public Address


Item 5 – Gemma Crossley (Agent for the Applicant)


Continuation of development without complying with Condition 2 (mineral extraction cessation date) of Planning Permission no. 18/00060/CM (MW.0001/18) in order to extend the period permitted for the extraction of mineral from 31 December 2018 to 31 December 2019 - MW.0001/19 pdf icon PDF 177 KB

Report by the Director for Planning & Place (PN6).


This is a planning application to allow a further period of time, up to 31 December 2019,  for the extraction of the mineral. The application area is within the overall permission for Shipton on Cherwell Quarry which had a range of uses on the site and currently includes waste recycling, land filling and restoration.


The report outlines the relevant planning policies, along with the comments and recommendations of the Director for Planning and Place.


The main issues with the application is the effect on the local amenity, and the need to extract the mineral. It is felt that the effect on the local amenity can be controlled by conditions and that there is a need to remove the reserve rather than have it sterilised. Therefore, the recommendation is to approve the application


It is RECOMMENDED that planning permission for application no. MW.0001/19 be approved subject to conditions to be determined by the Director of Planning and Place to include the Conditions set out in Annex 1 to the report PN6.


Additional documents:


Agreed subject to:


·                       amending Condition 2 in Annex 1 to the report to read 2. The extraction of minerals shall cease by 30 September 2019.

·                       An additional informative to encourage the applicants to implement the rail sidings as included in the planning permission.

·                       A monitoring report on progress of extraction and restoration of the site to be submitted to the Planning & Regulation Committee in 6 months.
